Registration Policy

SME offers several types of member and nonmember registration options. For more information about a specific type of registration, please review the information below.

Registation Policy

All attendees and authors at the THRIVE 2019 Conference are required to register. Nonmember authors may register at the member rate. Badges are required for admittance to the technical sessions and social functions.

Wire Transfer Policy

If paying by wire transfer, the registrant is responsible for paying any bank fees associated with the wire transfer. When contacting your bank about the wire, you will need to request that 57A field is changed from either “Share” or “SHA” to “OUR”. This will make all fees paid upfront by the sending party.

Student Registration Policy

Student registration for the THRIVE 2019 Conference must meet eligibility requirements. SME requires that an individual must be attending a college/university/higher education institute on a full-time basis to qualify for student registration rates. SME cannot process student registrations without evidence that you are a full-time student. Students enrolled in 12 or more semester credit hours are considered full-time.
