The Conference Registration Pass gets you access to optional and included activities. For questions, contact us.
Do presenters and moderators have to register?
They need to register. Some may receive a discounted or comp registration.

If I am unable to get a hotel room at the event’s hotel(s) at the conference rate, what do I do?
Please let us know via email right away so we can do all we can to help you get into the hotel. In many instances, we are successful in helping you secure a room. Contact Us.
How do I find out about Continuing Legal Education (CLE) or Continuing Education (CEU) credits?
If you are interested in CLE or CEU credit, let us know through the online registration process and before the conference (for CLEs, it will ask for the State and your Bar number. We request CLE credit upon request with some states self-reporting.) Certificates will be emailed upon completion of the conference to those who have requested them.
Does exhibit booth registration include a conference registration?
Yes, one conference registration and one 25% discounted registration comes with each booth. Additional booth personnel are required to register as an attendee.
I don’t see an Exhibit Floor Plan to select my space.
The conference makes the booth assignments to ensure everyone gets a good spot. Location preference is given to supporters first, and then in order of registration.
Can I bring additional persons to just man the booth and not attend the sessions for no additional cost?
Any additional persons beyond the one conference registration that comes with your booth are required to register whether or not they attend conference sessions.
Can I bring my spouse to the meals or reception?
Your spouse is welcome to attend the reception for an additional fee with registration made in advance. The meals are reserved for attendees. To find out current fees or for answers to any questions, contact us.
If I apply for a scholarship by the deadline but get notified that I am denied the scholarship, can I still get the Early Bird rate?
Yes. If we are unable to fund your scholarship request, we will still honor the Early Bird rate should you decide to register, and do so by March 15.
Can I make a change to my original registration?
To make changes to your original registration, use the link in your confirmation email to add items to your registration. You will receive a modification confirmation email with your updated registration information. If you are wanting to replace a paid outdoor classroom with another outdoor classroom, email us at email@example.com to assist with his change so that you are not overcharged
Can I cancel my registration?
Think substitution before you cancel. Registrations may be cancelled by March 31, with an 80% refund provided. After that time no refunds are provided* but substitutions are welcome at any time.
*Federal Govt employees registering under the planner approved while they await their approval to attend receive a full refund at any time.
How do I make a substitution?
Substitutions can be made at the link found in the registrant’s confirmation email. Once you make the substitution, make sure the new attendee’s complete contact information is updated (if not done at the same time of substitution, you may need to modify the registration after the substitution is made which is done through the same link). A confirmation email will be sent to the new attendee.
What is the dress code for NMEBC?
Business casual is the norm, but we have attendees who dress in jeans and those who wear a suit and tie. So dress to your liking.
