Registrations can be submitted with a credit card payment or with the option to get an invoice and pay via check. 

Note: Conference speakers who are employed by, or a trustee of, a library (academic, public, school, special), a library agency, or library school located in the state of Illinois are required to register and pay the appropriate registration fee if they plan to attend the virtual conference.
