To use WSMTA's online registration system, each participating member must create a login, and must have paid MTNA dues for 2012-2013 -- well in advance of the registration deadline. If you delay paying your dues, you will not be able to create a login or register for events.
Online registration saves time for teachers and for those who oversee the adjudications. The online registration form does all the math for each teacher's registration fees, and saves each teacher's information to a database, to expedite preparation of the event schedules.
