Full Member vs. Open Access Member Registration
Full Member and Open Access Member registration are both open to Members of PTO. The Full Member registration is the full price registration for the conference. If you have the privilege of being funded by an organization or can personally afford to pay full price, please do. The lower priced Open Access Member registration is there to make the conference accessible to as many people as possible. Instead of making people prove a need for a “scholarship,” we at PTO believe in allowing folks to self-select for need. If you have a need for a lower registration price in order to attend this conference, please choose the Open Access Member registration.
However, for PTO to continue offering the Open Access Member registration price, those who can afford Full Member Registration cost must self-select to do so. We rely on an “honor system” to continue making the annual conference and other events financially accessible. Please don’t forget that as an entirely volunteer-led, not-for-profit organization, we rely on your membership and donations. All of our income goes directly back into conferences, events, and activities that support your work!
