Membership Services Briefing
We've heard your questions and comments about the new registration process for Norwescon. In answer, here's how it will work:
If you have preregistered there are two ways of receiving your badge at Registration. If you have already printed off your Acceptable Use Policy form (AUP*) with the pre-printed barcode that identifies you, you can go directly to the registration cashier. Otherwise, your AUP can be printed at the convention. There will be staff on hand that will help you do this. The general registration process is described below. *Note: The AUP form is an agreement between you and the convention that you will abide by the rules. Your signature on the AUP is required, so electronic format of your AUP will not be accepted. Paper copy is required.
Pre-printing your AUP is not required, but it can help speed up the registration process. In case you cannot find your original confirmation email or the original AUP link was broken, you will be able to print your AUP w/barcode from an email that will be sent to you in the next couple of days. If you have paid your membership and do not receive the follow up AUP-email by Wednesday, March 20th, please email firstname.lastname@example.org .
If you have not preregistered, there will be staff on hand to help direct you to the on-site registration kiosks where you will enter your registration information. Our staff will then direct you on to the next step in the registration process.
General Membership Registration
The general registration process for pre-paid attendees will be:
Go to the area marked in Green to start the process.
If you do not have a pre-printed AUP w/barcode, one will be printed out for you there. If you do have the AUP you will be directed where to go next.
Sign your AUP.
Present your signed AUP and photo ID to a registration cashier.
The registration cashier will compare your photo id to your real name on the AUP. The barcode will then be scanned to print your badge. The form will be returned to you.
Take your signed AUP to the badge printing station and exchange it for a badge that matches the badge name on your paperwork. There you will also pick up your registration packet.
Attending Professionals & paid guest of pro
Come to the Green Room (Cascade 11) when you arrive. The Green Room staff will have your Acceptable Use Policy form (AUP*) with the pre-printed barcode that identifies you with your packet. (For your Guest of Pro, their AUP will be with the associated Pro's packet). The Green Room staff will scan your barcode to print your badge. You'll need to sign the AUP, collect your packet, and you're all signed in.
The Dealers Room Coordinator will, as usual, have your Dealer and assistant badges. You will need to sign your Acceptable Use Policy form (AUP*).
Thank you Everyone!
Fine meal with fine company

Norwescon is a science, science fiction and fantasy convention that takes place on Easter Weekend each year. We are an all-volunteer organization and always have room for more dedicated volunteers. Without members, though, there would be no reason to hold a convention; thank you for your support!
We were recently notified that Norwescon is a 2012 ALL STAR AWARD winner by Constant Contact, that mean's we're in the top 10% of our class making you all #1. Thanks and stay tuned for more information as to what that means for you!
