    To qualify for the member rate, the registrant must be a paid member on an active AACRAO membership roster (institutional, affiliate, corporate, organizational, or individual).

    Registrants may register at the One Day Only rate once. If attending more than one day, they must register at the applicable rate for the entire meeting. This badge will only be available for pick up on the day that was chosen. No early access will be granted.

    Guest registration is available for spouses, companions, and children of registrants. Professional colleagues are not permitted to register as guests. A discounted guest registration fee is offered to children under 18. Registered guests may visit the Exhibit Hall and attend the Welcome Reception (excludes professional development sessions).

    Discounted registration is available to first-time minority attendees from higher education institutions. The completed First-Time Minority Attendee Form must be submitted with the registration form. If registering online, the form may be completed online during the registration process or submitted separately to meetings@aacrao.org.  

    If you register for a workshop, luncheon or reception, you will receive a ticket with your badge upon meeting check-in. Name badges are required for all sessions, workshops, and events as well as entrance to the Exhibit Hall.
