Membership Discount Rates

Individuals must be members in good standing at the time of registration in order to qualify for discounted member rates. SME Membership can be added and paid within the same transaction, but registration for the SME Minnesota Conference does not include membership in SME.


Wire Transfer Policy

If paying by wire transfer, the registrant is responsible for paying any bank fees associated with the wire transfer. When contacting your bank about the wire, you will need to request that 57A field is changed from either “Share” or “SHA” to “OUR”. This will make all fees paid upfront by the sending party.
