Regpack Online Registration System Updates

GVATA will be using the Regpack online system for conference registration and for the collection of dues and fees.  You will need to create a new account for the upcoming year.  You will use this new account for both the 2022 Summer Conference and 2023 Mid-Winter Conference registration and payment. 

You will have the ability to access your Regpack account at any time during the year by logging into the system using your email address and password that you create.  Please do not create a new account if you forget your login credentials.  You can retrieve your password by clicking the Forgot Password? link.  If you are still having trouble please contact the Executive Secretary at exec.sec@gvata.org for assistance in unlocking your account.

The use of a debit card will not incur any processing fees.  However, the use of a credit card will be charged a 3.9% fee and e-checks will be charged a 1.5% fee.  When you enter your card number, the system will recognize it as a debit or credit card and apply the appropriate processing fee.

On Site Conference Registration Changes

There will be an express check-in line for all teachers who have a $0 balance (account paid in full) on or before July 7th.  You will simply come through the express line to pick up your name badge and conference materials.  Teachers that qualify for the express lane will be sent an email on July 8th notifying you that your conference materials will be in the express check-in line.

State Staff will register with their assigned Areas. For example, the South Region office will register with the Area 5 GVATA Director.  It will be based on the address of the office that you work in.
