Registration Instructions




 Please read carefully before you register.

There are two (2) ways to register for the 2015 joint C&NWHS and UPHS Omaha Convention.

1) You can sign up for a Full Convention Registration for a fee of $189. This option includes all activities* and meals from Thursday afternoon through Sunday morning.

*It does not include the EXTRA FARE Bill Wimmer Museum event described below.

2) Your other option is the Weekend Registration. For a fee of $125, this option includes all activities and meals for Saturday and Sunday June 6th & 7th. See schedule for full list of activities.

* * * To sign up and reserve swap meet tables please click HERE. You can not reserve swap meet tables on the convention registration form * * *.

Please note: for spouses that select the Full Convention Registration, their fee includes the cost of the Friday women’s bus tour. The spouse must indicate on the registration form that they are going on the women’s tour as seating is limited.

If the spouse does not select the Full Convention Registration, there is also an opportunity to sign up separately for the women’s bus tour.  That cost is $40.

There are no costs associated with the other women’s activities during the Convention.  This includes the women’s activity room at the hotel and the Sunday garden open house.

A La Carte Meals
For spouse and family members attending with a registered (Full or Weekend) member, those persons can purchase specific meals on an A La Carte basis.  An example would be a spouse who just plans to attend the banquet.

Extra Fare Registration
There is one convention event that is not included in the Full Convention Registration.   This is the rare tour on Thursday morning June 4th of Bill Wimmer’s personal railroad museum. There are three departing times for this event and will be limited to the first 114 people who register. The cost is $16 and includes the bus transportation to the Wimmer Museum.

NOTE: The convention registration table will open up at 8:00 am on Thursday and the convention will officially start with presentations that afternoon.
