Paper Registration / On-Site Registration

For attendees whose district or university require a paper registration form, we provide a paper registration form. All checks and POs should be made payable to the Ohio Council for the Social Studies. The paper form can be mailed to Betsy Hedler at the Ohio History Connection at 800 East 17th Avenue, Columbus, OH 43211, with a check or PO. If sending with a PO, the form can be emailed to or faxed to 614-297-2567.

Online Registration

Online registration note: Please note that if you registered online last year, the Ohio History Store will remember you and ask you to login before you complete your registration. It will say “You are already registered.” This means that you’re registered for the online store, not the conference. If you don’t remember your password, there is an option to have the system send it to you. You are not finished registering until you’ve logged in and completed payment. If you don’t receive a confirmation email from the Ohio History Store you may not be registered! In this case, check with Betsy Hedler at or 614-297-2538 to make sure your registration was received.

  1. I am registered for the conference itself. How do I ensure that I can get the sessions I wish to choose? Is there a formal selection process or is it first come first served?

    • So glad to hear this, Karen. The program will be published mid-summer, and typically we do not have registration for individual sessions. Stay tuned, but I believe all sessions will be open and first come-first served.
