Registration for the 2019 conference opens 15 October 2018
please read the instructions below, fill out the registration form and make payment by furikae.
NOTE: We are a local (within Japan) organisation and do not provide help with obtaining entry visas to Japan.
HOW TO REGISTER:
Two Parts — Payment & Registration Form
Use a Postal Money Order (furikae) to remit your money. Pick one up at any post office and send it to the following account:
Acct #: 00240-3-29031
Acct Name: Women’s Conference
Please remember to allow 7 days for the money to reach our treasurer and be recorded. Be sure to write your name and address in Roman letters. Sometimes we have trouble attributing payment. This happens when the registration form name is different from the name on the furikae form. If this situation applies to you, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to inform us the name on your form and the date of remittance.
2) REGISTRATION FORM:
Please fill out the registration form here.
We expect almost everyone to use the online form, but if you need to register by post, please email Sarah (email@example.com), and we can send you a registration form
If you require partial financial assistance, you must apply before filling out the form. See the Financial Aid section below. The Women’s Conference is not run for profit, so please do not apply for financial aid unless you cannot attend otherwise.
If you are having trouble registering online, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
To receive a full refund (less postage), please write to email@example.com before January 15. After that date, we will charge a cancellation penalty fee of 25%.

Full time ministry or humanitarian work: for those engaged in these activities and are in need
Travel assistance: for those coming from far away – if you need help with car pooling, please let us know
