Please note: Current PES members who have paid their dues enjoy a deeply discounted rate on registration.  The current PES membership year began July 1, 2016 and ends June 30, 2017.  If you have not been receiving the monthly “PES Members’ Bulletin,” this undoubtedly means your membership has expired.  To renew your membership (or to join for the first time), please visit the “Membership” link at the top of this page.


Also, you can save an additional $50 USD if you register by February 22, so don’t delay!


If you have any questions about the registration process and/or PES membership, please email the Executive Director.
