ONE-DAY registration ($45) is available in advance and on site. You may register in advance to enroll in one-day classes and events. When you register, please indicate your specific day(s) of interest. One-day registration includes a Conference Program Booklet and qualifies registrants to enroll in one-day classes and events. Individual fees for classes and events are not included in registration.
Although both members and nonmembers may register, membership is strongly encouraged and is ultimately more cost-effective. For information or to apply for membership, see the back of the registration form or join online at www.decorativepainters.org.

Once you've registered for Conference and know your schedule, complete and return this volunteer form to the address provided. Volunteers need not be members (unless they are election tellers), but we ask that they be adults. Volunteers who work at least five hours will be entered into a drawing for original painted pieces, created and provided by members. All volunteers receive a limited-edition charm! Share your time and talents and make some new friends along the way.
GUEST BADGES: Guest badges are available to FULL and PARTIAL registrants only, for $15 each. Guest badges admit their holders to the Expo and Expo Premier Opening, Class Sales, and the Certification Display. Guest badges must be ordered at the time of registration. Sorry, no on-site guest badge requests are available.
Unregistered Conference attendees may purchase daily Expo admission passes for $7 on-site, or a 3-day pass for $15. A daily pass qualifies its holder to Expo admission on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday, Premiere Opening excluded.
CANCELLATION POLICY: Necessary cancellations for Conference requested via email, in writing prior to April 2, 2014, entitle registrants to a partial refund; $50 of each registration fee is non-refundable.
