  2. Couldn’t make PayPal work — it hates me! I’m printing the registration form and sending it snail mail with a check.

  3. Oh, no. My plan to mail the registration and check is foiled — I can’t find a mailing address on the convention site or the Houston SPJ site. Hoping someone can help me get registered!

  4. What happened when you tried to use Paypal?

  5. The mailing address is kind of buried on the bottom of the registration form – it’s Society of Professional Journalists/Houston chapter, PO Box 211, Houston TX 77001. Sorry about that and thanks for your perseverance!

  6. I’ll send the check today! Thanks Ruth.

  7. I wanted to pay with a credit card (the site indicates we can do that), but when I continued with the registration, I was only given the Pay Pal option. Can I call and give you my credit card number as we’re pushing the deadline for early bird registration?

    • I think the credit card icons may be associated with PayPal and should have been edited by us – sorry about that. I will check with our treasurer about taking CC numbers by phone. Another option is to mail a check, but if that’s inconvenient I’ll work it out. In the meantime, I have your registration recorded, so don’t worry about missing the deadline. Thanks for your patience!

      • Hello! I tried to pay today with two seperate cards, and PayPal accepted neither. How else can I pay for it today? The mail has already gone out for the day. I also tried to e-mail through outlook, and outlook told me that e-mail’s no longer valid.

  8. So sorry about these problem with PayPal. In the morning I will get an answer and let you know what’s wrong. In the meantime, if you have registered already the rate won’t go up for you on the 20th. Again, thanks for your patience.

  9. I am having an issue registering through Pay Pal and I’m all out of checks. Is there anyone who can help me?

  10. Hi Britney. I sent you a message through the conference email. Thanks for your patience.

  11. Hi, I registered in the 18th, but I still can’t pay through paypal. I also don’t feel comfortable mailing a check. What can I do?

  12. I’m registered, but I can’t pay through Paypal. Are there any other options?

  13. The Houston Sun Newspaper is celebrating its 30th Anniversary on March 29th and I am one of the volunteers, so I will not be able to attend. I know the SPJ Conference will be a great success!
