Options on Your Registration Form


When you fill out the registration form, you must indicate your decisions about five options:

  • The conference fee you will pay
  • Whether you will participate in a pre-conference activity
  • Whether you will participate in a post-conference workshop
  • Whether you are a social worker who wants CEU credits for attending the conference
  • If you are already a member, what you must do to have a person living with you attend the conference for free

This page explains the four options. If you have questions about these options, call Craig Hogan at 800 690-4232 or e-mail r.craig.hogan@spiritualunderstanding.org.

When you are ready to register, you may register online by clicking on the "Register" option in the menu near the top of the page or by clicking on a "Register" button that appears on some of these pages. If you want to mail in a paper form, you can download the paper form at this link.

Pre-conference Thursday Evening Events

Post-conference Workshops


A Household Member May Attend Free

If you are not a member of ASCS when you register for the conference, you will receive a one-year free membership, with all of the publications and benefits of membership. One benefit is that ASCS members may bring along one household member, who may attend the conference for free. If you want someone who lives with you to attend the banquet, you must pay a $70 fee for the banquet meal. The banquet is optional, however. You will pay that fee when you submit the registration form.


CEUs for Social Workers

CEUs for social workers who attend the conference have been applied for. On the registration form, indicate that you want to receive information when we know the CEUs are available. We’ll send you information about how to apply for them.

The CEUs are not available for Rochelle Wright’s workshop.
