METRO's website and registration system make it easier than ever to register for webinars, workshops, special events, and Special Interest Group meetings. Simply find the event you're interested in attending on the METRO calendar and click on the Register button.
I want to sign up for a workshop. Where is the registration form?
Do I need to log in or create a profile to register?
If you are creating a site profile for the first time, be sure to choose the appropriate profile application* on the Log In page:
- Employee of a METRO member institution,
- Individual myMETRO member, OR
- Non-member site user
*Please note that only bold fields are required on the profile application, so don't get discouraged by the lengthy form! You can complete more of the application questions at your convenience once your profile has been set up.
How can I pay my registration fee?
Credit Card - Online
Once you have completed the registration form, you will be re-directed to our secure online payment gateway. You may then use personal or institutional credit card information to complete the payment process.*
*Please note that if you are registering for more than one workshop or event with the same fee (eg. a $20 webinar and a $20 workshop), you will need to wait a few minutes in between payments. Otherwise, security measures built into our gateway will recognize the second and subsequent transactions as fraudulent duplicates, and the payment attempts will be rejected.
Check - Offline
You are welcome to mail a check (with a copy of your printed invoice) to METRO at 57 East 11th Street, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10003. Checks are also accepted on-site and same day, unless otherwise stated in the event description. Please make all checks payable to Metropolitan New York Library Council.
Send Invoice - Offline
This payment option will generate an on-screen invoice, which you may then print and submit to your institution for payment to METRO. No additional invoices will be sent to your institution unless, due to accounting requirements, you request a letterhead invoice by emailing Laura Forshay directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make all checks payable to Metropolitan New York Library Council.
I went to the event page and it says "Event is Full." Can I still register?No, this means that registration capacity for the program has already been reached, and no additional registrations are being accepted. You can request that METRO add you to a waiting list, in the event of any registrant cancellations, by emailing Laura Forshay at email@example.com.
What about "Registration has Ended"?This means that the registration deadline has passed and no additional registrations are being accepted. Please note that registration is required in order to attend all workshops and events other than Special Interest Group meetings.
What if I need to cancel my registration?
