How to Register for Events

Event registration

Q. When I attempt to register for an event I am asked for a username or verification code. Do I need these to register for an event?

A. You do not need a username, password or verification code to register for NEW regional events. To register for an event as a non-member, visit our Calendar page, click on the event you wish to attend, click on "Register for this Event" and then click "Not a Network Member? Continue without signing in.” For more information download our Event Registration Guide.

Q. Why doesn't my password and username work?

A. Your membership may be expired or you may be trying to sign in using an old username and password. Please see Membership below for more information on how to start or renew your NEW membership.

Q. I forgot my password — how do I recover it?

A. You can reset your password by clicking on the "Forgot Your Password" link beneath the sign in box. This will automatically generate and send an email to the address listed in your profile, containing directions on how to reset you password.

Q. I have to cancel my event registration and it is past the refund deadline. What are my options?

A. Check with the event organizer listed on the event Calendar page. You may be able to send a replacement in your place. The replacement will need to complete a walk-in registration form on site.

Q. How do I obtain an event registration receipt?

A. If you're a member, sign in to the site and click on "My Membership." Under Account History, click on "Event Registrations." Click on the print icon next to the event for which you wish to receive a receipt. If you are not a member, you may request a receipt by using the Contact Us link on each page.

Q. I am not sure if I registered for an event correctly because I was never asked to provide credit card information.

A. If you did not provide credit card information your order did not go through. For more information download our Event Registration Guide.


Q. I have attended Network events in the past. Am I automatically a NEW member?

A. NEW regional events are open to members and non-members. To become a national member of the Network you need to join the Network and pay your annual dues or, if you are an employee of one of our partner companies, be assigned a corporate membership by your company's NEW Ambassador. To see if you qualify for corporate membership, contact your company's NEW Ambassador. For more on how to activate a corporate membership, download Corporate Members: Getting Started.

Q. My company is a national Network partner. Am I automatically a member of the Network?

A. No. Each partner is allotted a limited number of memberships. It is up to your organization’s Network Ambassador to assign these memberships and invite the persons they designate to become members and join our online community.

Q. I must be a member. I get the Network's twice-monthly Insider magazine and communications from my region.

Many mailings, including the Network Insider and NEW SmartBrief, go to non- members and members alike.

Q. How do I become a Network member?

A. To become an individual member, click on "join” and follow the instructions. A 12-month individual membership costs $200 and includes full website access, an invitation to our NEW Leadership Summit and other benefits. To become a corporate member contact your company's NEW Ambassador to see if you qualify.
