When does early bird registration begin?

At 8 am Eastern Time (ET) on Oct 9th

I am not a member yet but I want to join. Can I do this at the same time I register?

This is a great time to take care of that! The best way to be sure you get a member discount is to FIRST sign up for membership (online at https://www.compostingcouncil.org/page/MemberJoin). Follow the steps to pick your industry and fill in your professional information. You will be prompted to pay by credit card at the end. Once your membership is paid and you log in to your account, you will automatically be offered ONLY the member price.

Why is COMPOST2024 holding its annual conference in Florida?

Daytona, Florida, was preselected as the location for our East Coast rotation of the USCC’s Annual Conference several years ago, before current state policies affecting marginalized populations were put in place. We are currently working on preselecting a state for our future conference with the DEIA mission in mind.

For COMPOST2024,  we are maximizing our efforts to ensure that these state policy changes are not harmful to our BIPOC and LGBTQ attendees. With regard to our 2024 conference, USCC staff and the DEIA committee are actively working with the Daytona Beach Convention Center and Volusia County officials to provide an as-safe-as-possible environment.
