Register for a Conference

You will find registration fees, details, and scholarship information for each regional conference by clicking on a conference name above. The regional pages also provide an opportunity to register online. You may use a credit card or request to be invoiced. Registration includes breakfast, lunch, and materials. Payment must be received in advance of the conference.

In addition to the regional conferences, URMIA will also offer webinars or other training opportunities depending on the needs of the membership. Regional conferences offer the benefit of a condensed conference that is affordable and a little closer to home.

Become a Regional Conference Host

The Professional Development Committee is also working on a long-range strategy to schedule regional locations. We move regional conferences around the country to reach out to our entire membership. If you are interested in hosting or chairing a regional conference in your area within the next three years, please contact us. This is a great opportunity to get involved, and you will have plenty of help from the Professional Development Committee and the National Office.
