If you are registering as a DOC employee & DOC is paying:
The DOC will only pay for the member rate ($135), so be sure that you have applied and paid for an ACA/WCA membership.  Click here to do so! Your division's administrative staff will process your registration payment with everyone else's in the form of a check.  Administrative staff should send an attendee list with payment of who is covered for that payment.  

If you are registering & not a DOC employee or the DOC is not paying for your registration:
You may mail your check or contact Emily Bortz, WCA Treasurer, for other payment options.  If you are paying for multiple attendees in one lump sum, please identify those attendees with your payment.

Please mail all checks to:
