Q. “My organization will not pay for field tours or guest fees, can I use multiple forms of payment on my registration?”

A. Yes, Once you arrive at the payment information section of your registration, adjust the “Amount to apply to this payment” to reflect the amount of the first form of payment, complete payment information and click the "Continue" button at the bottom of the page.  Your first payment will be processed and the amount will automatically update to reflect the new “Balance Due”.

Q. “I work for a government agency that has restrictions on when I can pay for my registration, can I register now and defer payment?”
