    Tips for Registration and Payment

    PayPal Caveats and Workarounds

    We use Paypal to process online payments. A PayPal account is not necessary, however currently it requires that the registrant also be the cardholder since it automatically populates that person's name into its system.

    For registrants whose organization will make payment, there are three options:

    1. Request that a check be mailed to MCTLC, PO Box 11926, St. Paul, MN 55111. The registrants' name must be included so that we know to whom to apply payment. -OR-
    2. Send an email to MCTLC Treasurer Mary Fred with the name, email, and phone number of the cardholder (for example, the admin assistant or bookkeeper). Mary Fred will forward an invoice for the registration amount to that person who may then use PayPal to process the credit card. -OR-
    3. Make a personal payment and request reimbursement.

    Register as a Group

    Register your colleagues a group using the "register a guest" option.

    The person who registers the group should be the person making payment. In other words, the person whose name is on the credit card should be the primary registrant since PayPal will require that person to be the cardholder. If the cardholder is not in the group use one of the methods outlined above.

    Register on Paper

    Click here to open and print a paper registration form. Once received, we will confirm your registration via email.

    Fall Conference Makes You a Member

    Your paid registration to MCTLC Fall Conference automatically begins or renews your one-year membership, including delivery of Language Magazine® to the address on file. To that end, please ensure that you update your profile with your year-round address. 

    Who do I contact?

    Contact MCTLC Webmaster Brooke Carlson to edit your registration, add a workshop, or with technical questions. 

    Treasurer Mary Fred can help with payment questions. See above for PayPal tips.

    Presenters, contact President-Elect Daryl Boeckers.
