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.
FOR PURCHASE ORDER PAYMENTS
- Individual completes registration form (and creates or updates MABE account)
- This will generate a pending registration in participant's name. A copy of the invoice will be sent to participant's email address.
- 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."
- Administer, please send PO to: email@example.com 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
