AM/PIC On-line Registration Now Open

The April, 2014 registration edition of The County Agent magazine has been mailed (just in the last couple of expect a copy in the mail soon...please keep in mind it sometimes takes a week or two to get across the country).   An electronic copy of the magazine is also available online at
Online registration is NOW online as well and can be found on the home page under the Alabama Logo - listed as :  2014 AM/PIC Registration - ONLINE

Early Bird registration (to avoid a late fee) runs through May 15, 2014.
By clicking on the above link - it will take you to the site.  The official link is:
There are hard copy registration forms in the magazine - but the preferred method is online.
Please remember that the online registration form is set up to handle one person at a time.  If you are planning to attend with a spouse/guest/family member - you will need to complete a separate registration for each person.  Why?   Many of you will want to pay for your family members on a personal credit card, and your registration on a different card.  This is the only way to separate payment options.
Credit card payments are once again being handled through the NACAA merchant account handled by PayPal.  Your credit card statement will show payment to "NACAA" not Paypal (in case your University has issues using PayPal).  You DO NOT have to have a Paypal account to pay via credit card.  There is an option to use a PayPal account if you have one - or simply select the option to use any credit card you wish.
Please let me know as you are registering online if you find "glitches" or issues with the registration.  I will do my best to assist with getting it corrected/updated as soon as I am made aware of potential issues.
Looking forward to seeing everyone in Mobile, Alabama - July 20-24, 2014!
