Preparing for 2020 Congress
The following message was sent by Secretary General Hurt for all GSMD members. TXSOMD wants to make sure our members have seen, read and prepared for the upcoming 2020 Congress Registration to open.
Are you ready to register for 2020 Congress? 2020 Congress registration will be opening soon. Please read this notice, as there are steps you may need to take to be ready to register for Congress as soon as it opens. When registration first opens, it will be the “Early Bird” Registration period, when members can benefit by paying a reduced registration fee. Early Bird Registration will only be available to GSMD members and their guests. During Congress, many venues will have limited capacity: we are reserving Early Bird Registration just for our members to ensure they have the first opportunity to reserve seats at limited capacity events. Early Bird Registration will only be available through the Members Only section of the GSMD website: www.themayflowersociety.org If you have not already been granted access to the Members Only section of the website, please follow these steps to secure your access: Be sure to have your 5-digit GSMD membership number ready. If you can’t recall it, you may click on the “Help” tab and the Membership Department in Plymouth will assist you OR it appears on the address label just above your name on your Mayflower Quarterly Magazine. Step 1. Go to the website and click on "Log in" at the top right corner of the screen; Step 2. Find the words in pink that say “Don’t have an account?” and click on them. Step 3. Complete the website access form and submit your information by clicking the “Register” button at the bottom of the page. Don’t forget to save your password!!! Step 4. You will receive a confirmation email with a verification link. Please read the email fully and click the verification link in email. Your account must be verified before it can be approved. (If you can’t find your email, be sure to check your spam/junk folder!) Step 5. Once you verify your account by clicking the link, an administrator in Plymouth will be notified to activate your account. Due to anticipated volume, please allow up to five business days for your account to be activated. You will receive a confirmation email when your account is ready. Take a test drive to explore all the resources available to you on the member’s only site. Please note: If you do not sign up for access to the members only section of the website before registration opens, your ability to register may be delayed. For 2020 Congress, we will be using this registration site to collect all registrations and payments. Paper registrations and checks will not be accepted. Once live, a dedicated registration specialist will be available to assist you with your on-line registration. Thank you for being prepared to register for 2020 Congress! We are looking forward to hosting you at this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
