You will be directed to your User Profile page and presented with the membership dialog box. The membership Type is pre-populated with the type they selected in the previous screen.

  • Use the email address you use when logging into the NAfME website and your nine digit ID # (if yours is less than nine... add zeros to the beginning of it to make it nine digits long.)

  • If your membership did not sync with the NAfME site correctly, email your NAfME info to membersupport@nafme.org for assistance. 

 

  • Once your account is set up and your NAfME membership is linked, Click on "Home" or the house picture to jump back to the main page.  

 

  • Select "2020 OMEA Conference" which takes you to a new page with options to register for the conference. If your membership is synced properly and is current, you should see the option for OMEA Member at the top, click select and fill out the form on the next screen. (If you do not see an option for OMEA member, this means that your NAfME membership did not properly sync/there's missing info in your membership profile.)

 

  • At the bottom, you can select your option for payment. If paying by PO or check, enter your bookkeepers name and email, and click "Submit and Pay" (If selecting PO, you do not need your PO number to submit your registration form). 

 

  • You will not get a confirmation email until payment has posted to your registration form. If you need an invoice, return to the home page and you'll see a box that says: "Existing Registrations" and to the right, click Receipt, and a window will pop-up where you can enter an email address to send it to. OMEA will not issue separate invoices, it is up to the teachers to get these to their bookkeepers.
