Tips for a Smooth Registration

  • When registering be sure to mark "WCR" as your primary affiliation. WCR receives a portion of each registration marked "WCR". This helps to cover costs and gives you access to the Council's room block. (special note: if you do not mark "WCR", the Palmer House will show as unavailable).
  • You will be given two options when registering. The "WCR Only" $390 registration fee gives you access to Women's Council's education and programming (excluding ticketed events) and the Expo. The "Premier Access" $450 registration fee gives you access to ALL NAR and Women's Council education and programming (excluding ticketed events). Choose the "WCR Only" registration if you're NOT planning to attend NAR programs and want to save $60.
