Membership and Conference Registration are two separate processes and require separate fees. Individual members receive reduced conference registration rates. More on requirements can be found here.

What are the requirements to submit a proposal?

All presenters must have an individual login and password in order to for the proposal to be submitted. Current and recent members will be able to retrieve their logins from the home page of www.nwsa.org using the email address associated with their membership. If you are including a potential presenter who has never been a member of NWSA, they must create a Non-Member Guest Login. Please send any questions about log in credentials to nwsaoffice@nwsa.org as early as possible. NWSA office staff will more easily be able to assist those who make early requests.


How can I retrieve my password?

If you have had a membership with NWSA, and do not know your online username and password, go to www.nwsa.org and click on “Forgot your password?” under “Member Login.” Enter the email address you have used to renew your membership from previous years. Please note: If you received a reminder regarding the presenter deadline, enter this email into the box. This is the email associated with your membership.


What do I do if I didn’t receive my password?

Please email nwsaoffice@nwsa.org


How do I create a Non-Member Guest Login?

If you are including a potential presenter without a username and password, they must create a Non-Member Guest Login. To create an account, go to www.nwsa.org/membership and then click the blue text where it says “Click here to join online today, or create a Non-Member Guest Login.” On that screen on the drop down member next to “Member Options” you’d select “Non-Member Guest Login” near the bottom of the list and follow the prompts from there. Please note, that all accepted presenters must become/have a current paid membership in order to present at the conference. However, you do not have to have a current membership to submit a proposal.


How many times may I present at the annual conference?

Whereas we do not have a strict rule on how many times a participant can appear in the program, we do recommend no more than two because of scheduling challenges.


I want to add a presenter but they are not showing up in the submissions system.

  1. Make sure you are entering the correct spelling of their last name in the text box, then look at the bottom of the screen for options.

  2. If your presenter does not appear, contact the presenter and ask them to create a non-member guest login. Once they have created that new account, instruct them to log out, refresh nwsa.org, and then login using the credentials they just created. Then click "All Academic" on the left hand menu bar. And "Click Here" to enter into the submission site. Once they have clicked into the submissions site, their record will now appear in the system

How do I check my membership status?

When do memberships expire?
All memberships run on a calendar year. 2015 memberships expire on December 31, 2015.
 
I have a Non-Member Guest Login, how do I renew?
