Registration for the conference is now closed. Thank you to all the speakers, attendees, and volunteers for making this a great and successful event.

Please make sure your CSANA membership is current for 2016–2017. Membership forms can be downloaded here; the form contains instructions for paying via PayPal.

Registration for the conference is open. If you would like to pay by credit card, you may register via PayPal here, or wait until your arrival and register onsite with a Canadian cheque or cash. The conference is $35; the Saturday evening banquet, at Red Ginger, is $40, and it must be paid by 6 pm on Friday, 21 April, as we will need to have a firm number to give the restaurant. If you need to hold a space at the banquet but plan to register on site, please let me know how many via email (

Additionally, we are asking attendees if you are willing to donate $20 to our hosts, the Vancouver Welsh Society, which brings a year’s out-of-town membership. Not only is this a nice way of thanking our hosts for the generous donation of the venue and of supporting their mission, it also ensures our compliance with the Society’s liquor licence, which requires a specific member-to-guest ratio in order to serve.

For those using PayPal, when you click on the link, you will see the Welsh Society Register page. Please enter the data and it will go through a data check process. Any format of ZIP code / post code will be fine. Upon completion, an email is generated and sent to the Welsh Society Membership Secretary, giving the registration and user details and, you will be presented with a “Donate” button which you must select, though you may choose “no donation.”

At that point, the PayPal screen will appear. Then, enter your credit card number. Upon completion you will then see another of the Welsh Society pages which says “Thank you” and on that screen is a Home button, which directs back to the CSANA2017 page.

We would like to thank Alcwyn Rogers for designing the PayPal interface, and Jacqueline Chapman (Welsh Society Membership Secretary) and Gaynor Evans (Welsh Society Treasurer) for facilitating the financial aspects of this year’s CSANA meeting.
