  1. Credit Card Payments 

Everything billed on ilaged.org, if paying by credit card, must be paid on ilaged.org.

The old Acceptiva links are still active for Alumni, PAS, IACCAI, and IAVAT Advocacy (accounts that aren't currently active on ilaged.org), but all other credit card payments must be made on ilaged.org which includes the credit card processing fee for that payment.

 

  1. CDE Registration 

Registration is now open for State Food & Vet Science CDEs. Please note, this will be the first event that combines both registration and submission of student names on ilaged.org. You will be able to register the number of students as you usually would through the Event Registration tab on ilaged.org, but this is also where you will eventually need to submit the student names actually competing at the event. This does not have to be done at the time of registration, but must be completed prior to on-site registration at the event (replaces the Google form that has been used for state contests earlier this year and written names on invoices in the past few years). Please note that student names can continue to be changed even after the registration deadline passes, but if you update the number of students registered before the registration deadline, you will have to re-submit the student names, as the system does not know which students should change if the number of students is adjusted. Further information regarding the contests and deadlines can be found on the specific event page on ilaged.org behind the login on the Event Registration tab or on ilaged.org > Teach > Career & Leadership Events.
