Professional Development Workshop Registration Frequently Asked Questions

How can I register for Professional Development Workshops?
Please read the details of the workshops you are interested in prior to signing up for them as some may have additional requirements, fees or require an approval code. You can view a list of PDWs here beginning in April. Click on the blue "Details" link next to the session title to view its description.
To register for PDWs please visit the following website and sign in to your AOM Account. Once we have verified your Annual Meeting registration and you are re-directed to the PDW registration system, please enter and verify your e-mail address, select your membership type, and click Continue. If you have used the system this year, it will recognize your e-mail address and request that you enter the password you created previously. Please note that the password is not automatically the same as your membership ID. If you do not recall your password, you may use the "forgot password" feature to have it emailed to you. You can then follow the instructions on the screen to complete your registration.

How do I add to/edit my existing PDW registration record?
To make changes to an existing registration, please visit https://secure.aom.org/PDWReg/ and sign in to your AOM Account. On the subsequent page, enter your e-mail address once and click on "View or Change Your Existing Registration" to continue. On the subsequent page, enter the email address and password you signed up on the PDW registration system with. This is not necessarily the same as your AOM Account information. If you forgot your password for PDW registration, please click on the "Forgot your password?" link to have it sent to your e-mail account. Once you've entered your password, follow the prompts to make changes. Remember to click Finalize or your selections will not be saved!  

I want to attend two sessions that overlap each other. How do I register?
Please contact the workshop organizers of the sessions you are interested in attending and inform them of your conflict.  With their approval, you will be able to leave one workshop early/attend one workshop late.  If there are still available slots and they are willing to make the appropriate accommodations, the workshop organizers will be able to monitor your attendance offline.  You will not be able to register for overlapping workshops through the online system.

I have been waitlisted for a workshop, but would really like to attend.
Please contact the organizer(s) to explain your situation to him/her. It is ultimately up to the workshop organizer to manage the attendance for the session.  You may view the list of PDWs here.  Click on the blue 'details' link next to the session title to view its description.  The workshop organizer's contact information will be found here.

I want to register for a workshop, but I can't find it on the list.
The list of PDWs in the registration system only reflects workshops which require registration in addition to the Annual Meeting registration. If no registration is required, then the workshop is open to all attendees. If the description of the workshop(s) you are interested in indicates that registration is required, but it is not on our system, this could mean one of three (3) things:
1. The organizer will be managing the registration process himself or herself. You will then need to contact him/her for more information on how to register. Click on the blue 'details' link next to the session title to view its description.  The workshop organizer's contact information will be found here.
2. The deadline for the workshop has passed, and the organizers are no longer open to accepting new registrations through the online system.
3. The workshop is full, and there is no waiting list for the workshop or event.

The system is requiring me to enter an approval code. Where do I get that code?
The approval code is provided by the workshop organizer. Please read the workshop details (http://aom.org/annualmeeting/registration/pdw/) for information on any additional requirements, payments, deadlines and restrictions.

I missed the deadline to register for a workshop. Can I still register?
Please contact the organizer(s) to explain your situation to him/her. It is ultimately up to the workshop organizer to manage the attendance for the session.  You may view the list of PDWs here.  Click on the blue 'details' link next to the session title to view its description.  The workshop organizer's contact information will be found here.
