For this upcoming convention, we would implement and put up self-register kiosks exclusively for pre-registered delegates WITH RFID cards. The RFID cards are exclusively for members (diplomates, fellows, emeritus fellows and active members) of the PPS and for those non-members (pediatric residency training graduates) who will take the written and/or oral PPS board exams. Pediatric redisents ongoing residency training are not qualified to get an RFID card.

The RFID cards of those who will avail of them for this upcoming convention will be ready for pick-up for NCR based delegates and delivery to chapter office for those outside NCR, one month prior to the convention.

This registration innovation would entail massive data encoding of all pre-registered delegates with RFID cards hence, please take not of the changes in the deadline dates:

Pre-registration and Annual Dues Deadline: December 15, 2016

RFID Payment Deadline: December 15, 2016

List of Pre-registered Delegates along with Registration Fee O.R. number, delegate´s full name, PRC number and email from the chapters forward to Secretariat Deadline January 15, 2017.
