Join APH First, Then Register at Member Rates and Save

APH offers three membership options for new members: Full Membership annual dues $200; Associate Membership annual dues $150; Introductory Membership annual dues $125. Read about APH member benefits. You can take advantage of a full year of membership and lower registration rates. We encourage those new to the conference to join APH prior to registering.

Volunteer Activities

APH could not pull off such a huge event without the help of its skilled volunteers. There's no better way to get in on all the action than to sign up as a volunteer when you register. Specific details will be communicated prior to the conference, but please sign up to help.

Photos for the Conference Directory

No later than September 15, please email your photo to cj Madigan, our Conference Photo Directory designer. Your photo should be 300 dpi .tif or high-resolution .jpg (minimum 2 by 3-inch portrait-style headshot, B/W or color). For the filename, please use all lower case letters and this format: lastname-firstname-2012.tif or lastname-firstname-2012.jpg. You'll be glad you participated when you see how useful the photo directory is. As you meet new people at the conference, you can put a face with a name and make notes—"talked with Sue at lunch about new digital recorders"—that help you remember everyone you met. Even after the conference, the directory remains useful to jog your memory about participants on Listserv. A bit of warning: if we don't receive your photo, we'll substitute a rather boring silhouette for your smiling face.
