Step-by-step Registration Instructions

Our new website allows each member to have their very own MABE account!
For this reason (as well as a question regarding dietary restrictions), we ask that each individual register on their own. 

  1. Individual completes registration form (and creates or updates MABE account)
  2. This will generate a pending registration in participant's name. A copy of the invoice will be sent to participant's email address.
  3. Participant should forward the pending registration to your supervisor who is in charge of the funds that will be used to pay for his/her registration. The PO from the school/ district must be received by MABE before participant is officially registered. Once MABE receives the school/ district PO, participant will receive a second e-mail notification indicating a change in status from "pending" to "registered."
  4. Administer, please send PO to: or mail to MABE, c/o Carissa Rutkauskas, 171 Mt. Hope Rd., Mansfield Center, CT 06250. Once the purchase order is received, your registered participants will receive an e-mail that indicates a change in their registration status from "pending" to "registered." POs MUST BE RECEIVED AT LEAST 5 DAYS PRIOR TO EVENT.*
If you district is unable to generate a PO before the event, we suggest that you pay via credit card and request reimbursement from your district.

*Due to too many "no shows," resulting in loss, MABE will be strictly following this policy
