Ten Things to Know Before You Register Online    

  1. Know your NAYDO Membership status; if unsure of your status contact info@naydo.org.  
    Learn more about becoming a member so you will qualify for lower rates.
  2. If your Y is an Association Member, make sure you have activated your 2020-2021 NAYDO Membership benefits. Your NAYDO Association Membership Contact can assist you with that or contact info@naydo.org
  3. Find out if your Y wants to pay in full or only pay a $50 deposit to guarantee the lower rates
  4. Determine method of conference payment (credit card or check). Wire transfers can be arranged.
  5. If you select CREDIT CARD payment and you are registering more than just yourself, be aware that each individual's registration will be charged separately.
  6. If you are paying by check (payable to NAYDO), the check must arrive in the NAYDO Office within 2 weeks of your initial registration date.
  7. Save each Confirmation Number found in the Confirmation email sent immediately following completion of online registration: the Cvent system identifies you by that number. There are no passwords.
  8. An INVOICE is emailed upon completion of the registration. Please forward it at that time to your accounting office or whomever may need this document. Your confirmation number is also listed on this document.
  9. Want to RESERVE SPACES but you DON'T KNOW THE NAMES yet? All names and related information must be provided by January 29, 2021. That is a requirement if you choose to take advantage of this opportunity.

2021 Conference Financial Assistance Applicants

YMCAs who were awarded assistance for the 2020 Conference were notified in July of the number of virtual conference registrations it qualifies them for in 2021. If you are the staff person or volunteer using one of those registrations, you still register for the 2021 Conference and pay the $50 minimum deposit by November 30. The assistance does not cover the $50. In addition, your YMCA must be a current NAYDO Association Member. YMCAs that received 2020 assistance cannot apply for additional funds for 2021 unless they received 2020 travel assistance only.

To apply for 2021 Conference Assistance, make sure your YMCA is a NAYDO Association Member and send an email to info@naydo.org outlining the number of virtual conference registrations you are requesting prior to the opening of conference registration October 30.

Approved conference sessions provide Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) certification credit.
