Questions and Answers About OAPSA's Conference

Question : Am I able to change my mind about attending virtually to in person (and vice versa?)

Answer: Yes, but you do need to go in and make the change in your registration yourself. We are not able to do that for you. Once you get your email confirmation confirming that you successfully registered, then you will be able to modify your registration, if need be. We will cut off all changes in registration 5 business days before the conference begins so we have an accurate account of who is attending in person.


Question: When will I get my link if I'm attending virtually?

Answer: The link will be emailed several days before the conference to those who indicated they would attend virtually.


Question: How do I register?

Answer: Online at https://www.crsadmin.com/EventPortal/Registrations/PublicFill/EventPublicFill.aspx?evtid=1b40c9cd-90e7-4f9e-b685-73027acf2794
