Why WAIT?  Register EARLY!

When you wait until the last day to register - please be aware that several hundred others may have chosen the same option.  Systems can fail; and if something goes wrong, you may not be able to complete your registration in time, forcing you to register onsite at a much higher rate.  

Onsite registration will begin April 3, at 10 am at the Omaha Hilton.
