Creating an Account

The Register Online Now! link on the home page will take you to a login page. Registrants who do not already have a PC(USA) account will create one by entering your email address and creating a user name and password. You will then receive a verification email with a link to proceed with completing your profile and the Big Tent registration page, so use a computer where you can receive emails when you start this process. 

Remember your user name and password so that you can log back in at a later time (if you are unable to complete your registration).

Those who registered for previous Big Tents, General Assembly, or other PC(USA) conferences in the last few years probably already have an account. Contact the G.A. Meeting Service if you do not remember your user name, and use the Forgot Password feature if you do not remember your password.

Family Registration

The on-line registration process accommodates registering other family members who are also attending the Big Tent or any of the Children/Youth programs. Checking the “Group” box on the Group/Family page (which appears after you complete your profile information) will then bring up additional pages for providing information about your family members.

Parents/guardians who are registering children for any of the Big Tent children/youth programs will use the family registration procedure. Additional information is requested for these participants as they are full registrants. In addition to first and last name, required information is:

  • Mailing address (this will appear as your address, unless you change it)
  • Daytime phone
  • Email address (this can be your email)
  • Date of birth

Please also be sure to indicate special dietary requests and other special needs.

Additional forms and releases are required for those registered in the children/youth programs; these will be forwarded by the registrar. 

Payment of fees

We accept major credit cards and e-checks for payment through the on-line registration system. You may use more than one method of payment if you wish some fees to be charged to one card/account, and other fees to a different card/account.
