Conference Registration Information 

MPSA Annual Conference registration rates are determined by:

  • Your MPSA membership status (To qualify for the discounted MPSA member rate, your membership must be valid through April 19, 2020. Please follow this link to learn more about MPSA membership. To register for the conference at the member rate, please note that conference registration must be made as a second transaction.),
  • Your income and/or professional level,
  • When you register, and,
  • Where you book your hotel (except if you live within a 50-miles radius of Chicago).

MPSA does not accept purchase orders, wire transfers, or bank transfers as payment. Registration is not refundable.

Registration grants attendees access to panels and poster sessions, the exhibit hall and select receptions. Neither meals nor hotel accommodations are included with your conference registration fee. You are responsible for making your own hotel and childcare reservations.

How do I register for the conference by mail?

While most of our conference attendees prefer to register online, it is also possible to register for the conference by check. If you would rather pay by check, please print and enclose this conference registration form .pdf when submitting payment to the MPSA office. Non-Political Science professionals may register at the MPSA member rate by contacting the MPSA office at conf@mpsanet.org. 

How can I access a receipt for my 2020 conference registration? 

Conference attendees can print registration receipts from the website. Log in at www.MPSAnet.org, click the "My Account" button at the top of the screen, then click the "Manage My Account" link. Scroll down to the "Recent Orders" section to see all recent transactions. Each transaction can be printed from this page by clicking the "View" button.
