Reduced entry fee program

 

Reduced Entry Fee Program
for students and new entrants to the Ontario power sector


APPrO understands that people starting out in a new field sometime need a helping hand. That’s why we are making a reduced fee option available to a limited number of students, new entrants to the Ontario power sector, and other particularly deserving individuals.

 

Special reduced Delegate rates for APPrO 2014 will be offered to a limited number of qualifying individuals who would like to attend the conference but find the registration fee a little beyond their means.

 

To qualify for one of these offers please send your name and contact details, along with background information on your work and interests in the power generation field, to <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>. Please put the phrase "Reduced Entry Fee Request" in the subject line of your message.
 
A number of terms and conditions apply, as outlined in the detailed explanations below.

3. Register in the Power Networking Centre through one of our collaborating organizations


APPrO’s collaborating organization partners, (which included Energy Storage Ontario and Ryerson University as of September 1, 2014) have arranged for preferred rates to access the programming at the Power Networking Centre. If you are associated with one of these institutions, you can ask them to include you amongst their membership for the purposes of registration in the Power Networking Centre (PNC). If agreeable, they will send you information on how to register online at the preferred rates. (Prepayment online is required for this form of registration.)

This can be done on-line up until November 13.
