Important registration form tips:

  • Login to with your own user account credentials to register! (if registering on behalf of a member, you do not need to use their login information to register them at the member rate) if you do not already have a user account and login credentials, you can create an account here: https://members.taahp.org/create-account. NOTE – you DO NOT need to be a member to create a user account.
  • When entering the attendee name, select from the dropdown list that appears rather than just typing info in (if possible). This way, the registration is connected to the existing record. If you do not see their name in the dropdown, you may type it in manually.
  • Only current/active members will be able to be registered using the member rate ticket. If you see “Not Eligible” next to their name, they do not have a current/active membership (memberships are by individual, not by company). In this case, you would register this individual using the “non-member” ticket.
  • IMPORTANT: If registering multiple people, be sure to enter unique email addresses for each attendee, so that everyone receives their unique join link. Zoom will NOT allow more than one email address for each attendee so if you enter the same email address for multiple people, only the first person to join the webinar will have access.
