Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why did I not receive the member rate when I tried to register?

  • It’s possible we haven’t yet received your membership dues. If you sent your dues but your registration rate isn’t reflecting this, check with the WVSPS office at If you have not yet sent your dues, you can renew your membership here.
  • You may also be registering with a different email address than what we have on file. The system will not recognize you as an active member. Be sure to use the same email address for your registration that you have registered with your WVSPS membership.

2. I'm a member of an out of state society. How do I receive the WVSPS member rate?

  • If you are a member of another state society, you can receive the WVSPS member rate by providing some proof of your current membership to our Admin office. Examples include a copy of your membership card or a receipt of payment for dues. Contact our office to provide this information at
