I registered by the Early Registration deadline, but the check didn’t get mailed in time. What rate do I pay?

Registration fees are based on the date of registration, not when the check or purchase order is received. If you registered on or before the Early Registration deadline, you will pay the Early Registration fee. If you registered on or before the Standard Registration deadline, you will pay the Standard Registration fee.

What is included in the registration fee?

The registration fee provides attendees with:

  • Access to educational sessions and keynotes from state, regional, and nationally acclaimed speakers
  • Access to over 75 exhibitors of educational products and services
  • Breakfast on Day 1, 2, and 3 *
  • Lunch on Day 1 and 2 *

* Full Conference registrants will receive all meals. One-day registrants will receive meals only on the day for which they’re registered.

My company needs a Tax ID number before submitting payment. What is your ID number?

The FEIN/Tax ID number is: 62-6001445. A copy of our W-9 is available upon request.

Do you accept credit cards?

Yes. We accept major credit cards.

Is TASL credit available?

Yes. School leaders will be able to earn TASL credit the 2014 LEAD Conference. More information regarding the amount of available credits and requirements for earning credit will be available at a later date.

How do I know if my registration was successful?

The confirmation page will appear displaying the information you filled in on the form, and you will receive an email confirmation. If you experience any difficulty with the registration process, please email LEAD.Conference@tn.gov.

I didn't print off my confirmation page to mail with my payment or Purchase Order. Should I register again?

No. Simply make sure that the name of the attendee (or attendees) is listed on the check or purchase order. You may also print the email confirmation and include it when you send your check or purchase order. There is no need to register again if you successfully registered and received a confirmation page the first time.

I cannot attend, and would like to send someone else in my place. How can I do that?

Please email LEAD.Conference@tn.gov by Oct. 17, and let them know that you would like to make a substitution. You will need to provide both the name of the original registrant and the following information for the substitute:

  • First name
  • Last name
  • Email address
  • CORE Region
  • School Name
  • District
  • Position (e.g. district supervisor, principal, etc.)

Otherwise, your substitute may go to the Changes/Substitutions booth at the onsite registration area to complete the substitution.

My registration fee has already been paid, but I cannot attend. Do you give refunds?

No. The LEAD Conference does not issue refunds on paid registrations. You may, however, substitute someone else in your place.
