2017 Convention Registration Information and Fees Schedule

  • Your WSRA membership must be current in order to register at the member rate. However, the online registration form includes the opportunity to renew or join at the same time as you register for the convention if you so choose. 
  • If someone other than yourself completes the registration for you, please be sure to provide that person with your membership data as each profile must have a unique username and password.
  • If you are a new user, enter your email into the new user text box.  That email becomes the username. 
  • Payment for the convention is appreciated by February 9, 2017. WSRA accepts direct deposit (otherwise known as Echeck or ACH) plus Visa, Mastercard, and Discover credit card payments. To pay with a personal direct deposit ACH, you will need to enter your account number and routing number. 
  • Agencies or School Districts new to paying WSRA by ACH, please contact Joyce Uglow at wsra@wsra.org or by phone at 262-514-1450 for the bank account information.
  • Registration is online only and will open in October, 2016.
  • After registering and paying online with a credit card or direct deposit (ACH), a receipt will be emailed to the email address of the registrant. 
  • Please save this receipt for your records.  Receipts can also be accessed in each WSRA profile in the My Profile tab.
  • If the registrant chooses to pay later with a district check, an invoice will be automatically generated and emailed to the registrant's email. 
  • Please forward this invoice to the school district's business office for payment to WSRA.
  • Purchase order numbers must be entered in the online registration form if a PO is required by the school district.
  • Purchase orders may be faxed to 262-514-1450 to communicate the names of registrants associated with each PO number. 
  • An invoice (for the individual registrant or for the group of staff members listed on the PO) will be generated for each PO and emailed to the school district by WSRA. 
  • No registrations will be accepted via fax or by mail. Registration is online only.
  • Mail all checks to WSRA at 909 Rock Ridge Road, Burlington, WI 53105.
