Understanding Premier Memberships and Event Registration

Just a reminder, if you have a Premier Membership this means you are pre-paid, but NOT pre-registered for events. You must register for any event you wish to attend. You will be given first opportunity to register and should do so right away. If you put off registering you could end up on the waiting list despite your premier membership status.
