Why is my password not working for conference registration?
Please use the “forgot my password” function on the registration page if you cannot remember your password. If that does not work, send an email to pomsmeeting@gmail.com.
Why was I charged multiple times for my registration?
When you register for the conference, only hit the “Complete Registration” button ONE TIME. If you click this button multiple times, it could create duplicate charges for your registration. Please send an email to poms@fiu.edu if this happens.
