Member Discounts

Member Discount: With a current NPM Parish Membership (of any size), the members’ rate is off erred to anyone in the parish community. If your name is not on the parish membership, incude the parish group number on your registration form. If you have a current NPM Individual Membership, the members’ rate is available to you; it is not transferable to another person..

Not yet a member? Non-member rates are available, but you’ll save if you join as you register. Check the new member box and visit NPM for membership rates (and postage outside the U.S.) to add to your convention registration form.

Clergy/Musician Duo Discount: Clergy members and musicians who register for the convention together, and in advance, receive an even deeper discounted rate. The one clergy member and one musician must be from the same parish or institution. NPM Parish Membership must be current. Registration and payment for both clergy and musician must be included together in the same envelope and be postmarked on or before the Early Bird or Advance registration deadline. (Sorry, this discount is not available online).

Seminarian and Religious-in-Formation Discount: Available for any full-time seminarian (diocesan or religious) or religious sister or brother currently in formation who registers for the convention. Through the generosity of an anonymous donor we are off ering a special discounted rate of $100 (early bird), $135 (advance rate), or $185 regular rate (after June 10). Please fill in your seminary/house of formation name on the line provided.

Youth Discount: Youth (twenty-one or younger, or a fulltime undergraduate) attending the full convention receive a discounted rate. NPM membership is required. If you don’t have a current Youth or Individual Membership, and your parish does not have a current NPM Parish Membership, add $45 for a new Youth Membership on theappropriate line of the registration form. A parent or chaperone must accompany youth attendees under eighteen. Chaperone must be at least twenty-one years old and registered either for the Full Convention or as a Companion. A signed copy of the Code of Conduct for Youth Participating in NPM Conventions, Code of Conduct for Chaperones and Parents Acting as Chaperones, and the Parental or Guardian Permission Form and Release must be on file with NPM before anyone under the age of eighteen may be admitted to the Convention.

Daily Registration: Be sure to indicate the day(s) for which you are registering, and note that the fee for full convention registration is usually less than the fee for multiple days.

Group Discounts: NPM chapters and parishes with a current NPM parish membership who register in groups receive a discount. Registration forms must be mailed together with one check, postmarked by May 27. Contact the NPM National Office at 240-247-3000 or toll-free 1-855-207- 0293 for more information.

Additional Information

Electronic Program Book: The program book is now available as an uploaded pdf file. You may deduct from your total fees the discount of $20 if a printed program is not desired.

*Companion (Adult or Child): Those registering as companions are welcome to accompany a full convention registrant to all activities except breakouts, workshops, or institutes. A separate registration form must be filled out for each companion including payment for any additional activities, and must include the name of the Full Convention Registrant.

Photographs: Several photographers will be recording the convention for the National Association of Pastoral Musicians. These photos will be used in the November issue of Pastoral Music, and they may also be used on our website, our Facebook page, and in promotions and other publications. If you do not want your face to appear in any of these places, please notify one of the official photographers, who may ask for a photo so that NPM can exclude images that include you.

You are welcome to take your own photos, but do not use fl ash. In respect for the artists and presenters, no personal video or audio recordings are allowed.
