While the annual meeting (Denver, CO November 18th this year) is still far away, it is never too early to start planning for the event. After all, the invited/volunteer call for papers deadline is April 15th. This year we are introducing a three tiered registration system: Call for Papers, Pre-Registration, and On-Site Registration. Each of these categories is open to any attendee– presenting or not– and we encourage everyone to register early. Registering in the call for papers period will give you a discounted registration rate, and it’ll also help us in the planning process. The Call for Paper’s registration rate ends when the Call for Papers submission period ends, so don’t wait! After that we switch into Pre-Registration, which will extend to October 31st, at which times On-Site rates apply. Now you might be saying, “The conference doesn’t start until the 18th, why are On-Site rates starting on November 1st?” And this is a valid question. For the most part, it once again boils down to planning, logistics, and shipping costs.
As part of the AAA’s ongoing effort to be an environmentally conscious organization, we will again be offering the GREEN registration. This means you get a discount, but also are making an active choice to cut down on the AAA’s paper use by not having a printed program (last year’s program was 680 pages!). Green Registration is available in the Call for Papers and Pre-Registration periods. Everyone will have access to our mobile app, which holds a searchable program, maps, a messaging system, and much more– details to come on that in the September. Below you will find the current rates, broken down by registration type.

Many members felt our refund policy was confusing, so with that in mind, we set about revamping it. With that in mind, please familiarize yourself with the AAA’s official refund policy below:
Requests for refunds or cancellations must be made in writing. Prior to the April 15, 2015 deadline, proposals may be withdrawn by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Between April 16, 2015, and October 15, 2015, a written refund request will be subject to a $25 administrative fee, except for persons who submitted a proposal that was not accepted for the final program.
Program participant registration fees are non-refundable; cancellations will not be accepted nor refunds issued.
No refunds will be granted for requests received after October 15, 2015. Under no circumstances will AAA issue refunds for no-shows. Badge sharing, splitting, and reprints are strictly prohibited.
If you registered as a non-member with a membership requirement exemption and decide to join AAA, the registration conversion can be accommodated within 30 days of the original transaction.
All this information and more can be found in the meetings section of the AAA website: http://www.aaanet.org/meetings/
