All conference materials also available for free through Digital Guidebook and online for print prior to/during the conference. A small amount of extra session books will be available for purchase on site, on a first come, first serve basis. 


  • The Online Registration form can only be submitted once. If you need a Mini-Conference ticket or additional Concert tickets, you will be able to obtain them on-site at the Conference. If there are additional changes that need to be made and cannot be added once we are on-site, please email info@oake.org. 
  • Conference Registration, Mini-Conference tickets and Guest Badges can be purchased on-site at the Registration Desk. They do not require pre-registration.
  • If you need to use school funds, or split payment between school funds and a personal credit card, please use the Paper Registration form to indicate how your registration will be split. 
  • Registration for the Conference requires a payment. Purchase Orders are not a form of payment. 

Purchase Orders (POs) by themselves are not a form of payment. When we receive a Purchase Order, an invoice will be generated and sent per the instructions on the PO. In order to be registered, payment must be received, by check, with registration, before the Early Bird deadline. Any POs we have received and processed before the Early Bird deadline, with a generated invoice, will be honored at the Early Bird price (this is in case there are delays with mailings, etc). For POs sent after the Early Bird deadline: We will accept POs after the Early Bird deadline, they will have an invoice generated, but the payment will need to be a check in hand, brought to registration on-site. 

No refunds for registration will be given.
