New SCHSIA Registrar

SCHSIA Membership,

Effective Sept. 1 2018 we will be changing the SCHSIA registrar from Premier Registry to Associated Registry. Members should be aware that any work orders mailed to Premier that do not arrive by August 31st will be forwarded to AR and will incur a delay. See below for links to the new work order and registration application forms with the contact information. We will plan to update the web site with new forms and contact info, soon.

Please notice that you may now pay by either check or credit card. Simply fill in your credit card information, along with signature and fax, mail or email the completed work order, along with the Registration Application . AR will require the original Certificate of Registry to be signed and mailed to them for transfers unless the new Registration and Transfer are being done at the same time.

As before, no work will be processed until full payment is received.

Thanks for your patience in this transition.

Any problems or questions may be directed to Jeff Ebert of AR,, 785-456-8500, or to Gary Keibler, SCHSIA Treasurer,, 502-228-3860.
