Registration Instructions for the 2020 UAV Convention

UAV 2020 Convention Registration

Please follow these registration instructions to register for the Ukrainian American Veterans 2020 convention. You will receive the link to attend after you register.

Convention Registration Instructions

Open a web browser and navigate to the UAV website, and then click on the “Quartermaster” link in the main menu.  This will take you to the Quartermaster’s shopping page.

STEP 1. Find the entry for “2020 Convention Registration” in the list of items to purchase and then click on the “Select Options” button below that item.

Click on “Select Options” button

STEPS 2 and 3. After clicking on the “Select Options” button, you should be automatically sent to a page showing details of the item you selected to purchase.  Scroll past the description text, and then enter your post number and delegate status. You must specify your post number and delegate status before you can add your purchase to your shopping cart.  Click and then select post number. If you are not a member, please select “Guest”; guests cannot be delegates.  Note that the “Add to cart” and “PayPal” payment buttons are inactive until you enter your post number and delegate status.

Enter your post number and delegate status

STEP 4. Once you enter your post number and delegate status, the “Add to cart” and “PayPal” payment buttons become active.  If you have a PayPal account, you may click the “PayPal” button to login to PayPal and pay via your PayPal account.  However, most people do not have a PayPal account and will prefer to pay by debit or credit card.

Click the “Add to cart” button to be taken to your shopping cart page.  The Cart page shows a summary of all your purchases and your total cost.  Note that PayPal, like all commercial payment gateways, adds a small transaction fee to all purchases, so your total will be slightly higher than the base purchase price.

Click on the “Proceed to Checkout” button

STEP 5. Once your purchase has been added to your cart, you may click on the “Proceed to Checkout” button at the bottom of the Cart page.  This will take you to the “Checkout” page where you will need to fill out your billing details (name, address, phone, email).

After filling in the required information, scroll toward the bottom of the Checkout page and then check the box to agree to the website terms and conditions. You will not be able to pay for your purchase until you check the box to agree to the website terms and conditions.

Click on either the “PayPal” button or the “Debit or Credit Card” button.  If you don’t have a PayPal account, select the “Debit or Credit Card” button.  A short form will appear below the black “Debit or Credit Card” button where you can enter your credit or debit card information.  If you selected PayPal, then a pop-up window will appear. If you select the “Debit or Credit Card” button, then you will need to scroll down a bit to see the credit card form. When entering credit card information, “CSC” is the 3-digit number on the back of the card.

Scroll toward the bottom of the Checkout page and then check the box to agree to the website terms and conditions

Once you successfully complete your payment in PayPal, you will be automatically redirected back to the UAV website.  You should receive a confirmation email within a few minutes with a receipt for your payment as well as a link to the Zoom webinar. Note that the confirmation screen will show payment was via PayPal even if you paid by credit or debit card; this is because we use PayPal as our payment gateway, so it will show that regardless of how you paid.

Need Help?

I hope you found these registration instructions easy to follow.

If you don’t see an email confirmation, first check your junk email folder; if you did not receive a confirmation message or have trouble completing your purchase, please contact the UAV Webmaster, Joe Nasevich, or call 434-882-7638.

Virtual Convention

The 2020 UAV convention will be virtual due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.  While we regret the inability to meet in person, we welcome the opportunity to allow more people to participate online.

The convention will take place Friday and Saturday, 6 and 7 November 2020.  The National Executive Board will meet Thursday evening, and the general membership meetings will be held Friday and Saturday, 6-7 November 2020.  Business meetings will be held 9:00-12:00 on Friday and Saturday.  There are no meetings in the afternoon.  An agenda is available on the UAV website’s Annual Convention page.

The conference will be hosted on Zoom in a webinar format.  You will be able to participate using your computer, tablet or telephone (audio only if participating via telephone).

Online Registration is Required

All UAV board members, delegates and post commanders must register in order to vote.  UAV members who are delegates, as well as non-voting members, members-at-large (MAL), members of the UAV Ladies Auxiliary and guests, are all welcome and encouraged to register and attend the virtual convention.  An open-format Q&A session is scheduled for Saturday, and all members and guests are invited to participate.

All registrations will be done online this year through the UAV website.  The fee to register is $10, and it can be paid through our secure online shopping cart in the UAV Quartermaster store.  You may pay by PayPal or credit card only.  Only one registration may be purchased at a time; if purchasing multiple registrations, you must make a separate purchase transaction for each person.

You will receive the link to the Zoom webinar via email after you register and pay your registration fee.  IMPORTANT: For security reasons, we ask that you do not share the Zoom link with anyone.
