|If you are considering attending but are not ready to register, please complete the online Interest Survey. It does not register you or obligate you to attend - it is simply to help us with advance planning to insure a good conference for all. The survey also includes a checkbox to indicate if you are interested in serving on the 2014-15 NMNWSE board, which will be elected at the Annual Meeting.|
|We encourage you to make your hotel reservations early.|
|Students, teachers, and non-employed members presenting posters can apply for a meeting scholarship to cover meeting registration fees - to apply just check the appropriate box on the registration form and provide a brief justification (eg, 'student presenting paper'). The scholarship covers the conference registration, receptions, and conference dinner. In exceptional circumstances, we may be able to provide full scholarships to cover lodging, all meals, and some transportation - please indicate in the justification if you feel your circumstances justify a full scholarship or other special consideration.|
|Further meeting details will be posted as available.|
|Please contact the NMNWSE Board if you have any questions.|
