Maybe I have overlooked some things, but (1) I don't know where the conference will be held. It's not overtly stated for me. (2) How does one pay the entrance fee? I have downloaded the form — now what?

The conference will be held in Mangilao, Guam, and there will also be historical field trips to the southern part of the island as well. Professor Rosa Palomo is finalizing the venue logistics. More details will be forthcoming. The address to send the check to is listed on the registration form: 35th PIBBA International Conference, P.O. Box 326766, Hagåtña, Guam 96932. Si Yu'os Ma'ase'!
