Account Set-Up /Log-in Instructions

Every person at the institution is considered a member, but each needs their own Sloan-C account log-in and password. It is important that anyone interested in Sloan-C resources sets up an account and affiliates themselves with the organization.

Please note that if you set up an account and do not affiliate yourself or have an existing account that’s not affiliated, the system will NOT recognize you as a member.

Workshop Discounts and Free Webinars - If you log in with an affiliated account, the site will automatically show you the $169 member price for workshops and $0.00 for webinars.

Conference Discounts - If you log in with an affiliated account, the discount code will be found on the left hand of the conference registration page in a gray box. Please note that there is a different discount code for each conference and you will need to go to a particular conference’s registration page to see the valid code.
