Conference registration

EMBAC welcomes both members and non-members who are interested in the industry or interested in joining EMBAC to its annual conference, set for 2017 in Seattle Washington, Oct. 22-25. Registration for the 2017 EMBAC Conference is now open.

Both members and non-members will use the EMBAC member portal for registration. You may register and pay by credit card from a secure site, or register and pay by check or purchase order.

Early registration incentives

The Executive MBA Council is offering an economic incentive for early registration: Members who register online and pay before the early registration deadline of 9 PM Pacific Standard Time (PST), Saturday, Aug. 26, can save $300 off the conference registration fee.

In addition, those who register and pay before the early registration deadline also qualify for a drawing to receive a free two-night stay during the 2018 EMBAC Conference for two people in a deluxe room with breakfast included at the location of the 2018 EMBAC Conference, which will be announced during the 2017 conference in Seattle.


To register, use the link below to complete the online conference registration form. The form allows you to register for pre-conference events, such as the popular Director's Program and EMBA Toolkit, as well as the conference's special event on the evening of Tuesday, Oct. 24.
