The discount registration can be used by whomever, whenever. The individual will need to register themselves through the website registration system. They will first need to sign into their NAPCP profile to register. If they do not have a profile, they need to set up a complimentary account here.
Once registered, the individual will enter promotion code: 16ACNOVINC at time of check out, deducting $400 from the registration fee.
