Attn: Jay Blackman, HECC Registration Chair
5333 Southview Drive
Lowell, IN 46356

While registering as an attendee, in the Review section, you will be able to register and pay for other individuals.  Make sure in the Payment Section, you add the individual's email as the "Assistant''s Email" so they receive an email of their registration confirmation.
