GNSI is a largely volunteer-based organization. GNSI prides itself on offering our members high quality events at budget friendly prices while giving our volunteer members opportunities for collaboration and professional growth.

Please ensure that you are familiar with the full conference registration policy.

We would like to especially draw your attention to three important notes about the registration process:

Note 1: Conference Registration Deadline: 11:59pm PDT June 7, 2019 (US) / 11:59pm EST June 8, 2019 (AUS).

After this date, no more registration submissions or requests to add/take off/switch for the following will be accepted:

  • Core full registration,
  • Evening guest tickets/a la carte event tickets,
  • Dining hall meal plans,
  • Business Lunch,
  • Banquet,
  • Housing,
  • Workshops and
  • Field trips

Day Registration will remain available until the conference is underway.

If the GNSI conference hits capacity, registration may close earlier than the above date.

Note 2: Workshop class size limit is final. There will not be any waiting lists or late additions to workshops.

GNSI strives to offer the highest quality workshop experience for both the instructors and the students.

The GNSI conference committee communicates with workshop instructors regarding how many students to expect several weeks before the workshop. The workshop instructors have more time to plan and there will be fewer chances for surprises and shortages of supplies/materials. GNSI would also like to give the attendees plenty of time to prepare and gather the materials.

Sign up early to grab your seat for the popular workshops!

Note 3: Field Trip group size limit is final. No waiting lists or late additions are offered. No self-driving and joining the field trip on site.

GNSI strives to offer the highest quality field trip experience for both the field trip site and the attendees.

Field trip attendee numbers are set using various limitations including but not limited to vehicle size, special equipment needs, and the location requirements. Many GNSI field trips feature behind-the-scene tours and space is limited. Additional ID verification and entry fee payments may be required prior to the tour.

All-day field trips may have pre-ordered box lunches. Pre-ordered box lunches require time by the GNSI committee to order and campus catering to prepare and deliver.

Waiting lists: same as workshops—if your second favorite field trip choice is open, grab that spot early instead of waiting for a possible open slot for your first choice.
