Pay by Cheque in USD

BMC Accepts Payments in US Dollars Only

Due to the complexities of ever-fluctuating exchange rates, we want our record keeping process to remain in US Dollars. The rates we determine for Foundations of Interpreting seminars are based in US Dollars. We appreciate that for our friends to the north this puts it upon you to deal with the exchange rate. Please be sure that your cheques are in US Dollars. Thank you.

Remember to Register!

Complete the registration form. This is a necessary part of the registration process!

When you are logged into the BMC website, you can view your registration status under Your BMC Account > Registration History. If you do not see your registration listed, you likely failed to complete the registration form. Check with the coordinator.
