- How do I register and get access?
1. Go to the Registration page HERE.
2. You can choose to register as an individual or to register a Group. Early Bird pricing is automatic until March 18, 2017, after which the fee for a Regular registration will apply. If you are a member a Category B, C, or D country, you will prompted to confirm that during the online registration process; your registration price will automatically reflect your country category.
3. Fill in the details for the registrant, nominating a password. Be sure to enter your email address accurately - that's our only means of communication with you.
4. You'll receive a confirmation email after registration containing your login details. You'll be able to login immediately and access the delegate-only sections of the website. Those who choose an alternative payment method will receive further instructions in an email regarding payment. Usernames and passwords will not be issued until payment has been confirmed.
- What is a Group Registration?
Group registration is intended for those wishing to register 10 or more people in one transaction.
Groups can be formed by corporations, organizations, friends, or colleagues. Each Group needs to nominate an Administrator, as point of contact for GOLD, who gathers payment and information from team members for submission to GOLD organizers. All names and accurate email addresses must be provided at the same time, and only one payment of the total amount can be paid.
Once you have registered a Group, you cannot add additional people to that group. They will have to start a new group or register as individuals.
- I have registered my Group. How do they receive their passwords?
If you have paid online they will immediately receive their passwords by email individually once payment has been confirmed. If you have elected to place an order and be invoiced for the total registration fee (Alternate Payment), they will receive their passwords by email when the invoice has been paid. Make sure you enter everyone's email address accurately.
- I have registered my Group and have elected to make an alternative payment (not online). What happens now?
You will receive an email from us explaining how you can pay by fax, direct transfer into our bank account or postal payment. When we receive your payment we will complete your order and send passwords to your group members. A $20 Wire transfer fee maybe applicable.
- I prefer not to put a Group payment on my credit card. What can I do?
If you choose the "Alternate payment" option when you register your group, you will receive an invoice in USD. Payment can be received by bank transfer, wire transfer, or company/organization cheque.
- I have a Group. Can individuals pay for their registration?
You can collect individual payments from your Group Members, but you must pay us at the time of Registration in one single payment - that is why we can offer the group discount. If individuals pay us separately it will be treated as an Individual Registration, not a Group Registration and they will not receive the group discount.
- Where can I get a receipt?
Receipts will be available to be printed once your account is activated and through your My Profile. Additionally you will receive email correspondence with a receipt indicating the total cost of registration and amount paid.
- Are you offering CERPs and Contact Hours?
CNE's, CPE's, CEU's and CERP's are being applied for. These credits will be applicable to Registered Nurses, Registered Lactation Consultants and Childbirth Educators with ICEA. Watch this space for the announcement of how many CERP's and CNEs have been awarded. Every year, we apply for CERP and CNE accreditation. Our applications are currently being processed and we must wait until we are approved before advertising how many educational credits we are able to provide.

No worries!

You'll be able to watch them at your own pace: Pausing to take notes, fast-forwarding to sections that you're interested in, or rewinding to watch it again.
