If you have already registered for the Conference:
Go to the Attendee Service Center from the REGISTRATION tab. Sign in with the email address you used for registration and the password from your confirmation message (or any new password that you created later).
On the Welcome page, click on “Update Your Info” (if you were already logged into the Attendee Service Center, you can just select the UPDATE YOUR REGISTRATION & INFO item under the REGISTRATION tab).
On the Update page, click the “Edit” link in the EDIT column in the row for the registrant whose information you want to update.
Continue through the registration form. On the Meal Events page, make your selections. (This would be a good time to update or add other information and to review your family surnames and historical towns.) Be sure to continue through to the end, including the payment and confirmation sections.
