Join APH First, Then Register at Member Rates and Save

APH offers two membership options: Full Membership, with annual dues of $225, and Associate Membership, with annual dues of $175. Read about the benefits of membership. 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. Very shortly after you pay for your membership, you will receive a welcome email confirming that your membership has been activated. At that point, you can register and get the discounted member rates.

Partner/Guest Information

Registrants can bring guests (spouse, partner, friend, or family member) who are not participating in the conference to meals or social events at the listed rates. Please check the "Guest" box on the registration form and add the name of your guest(s), along with any food constraints. Applicable fees will be included in the final amount due.
Note: Those wishing to attend any program sessions must register separately as a conference attendee.

Cancellation & Refund Policy

A fee of $100 will be deducted from the refund total if a full-time registration is cancelled on or before Monday, September 26. Cancellation of a one-day registration will incur a $50 penalty. As of Tuesday, September 27, our hotel commitments are binding and no refunds are possible.

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.

Pre-Conference Seminars (optional)

You have an opportunity to attend one of two in-depth, full-day pre-conference seminars on Sunday, October 23, 2016.

Enrollment is limited, and fees are discounted during Early Registration (July 1-31).

Photos for the Conference Directory

Registrants are often seen flipping through the photo directory and making notes. 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.

Registrant using Conference Photo Directory for notes.

For APH members only, we have an online feature to upload your head-shot photo for the Conference Photo Directory. This process will take care of the naming conventions automatically, which makes the process easier for you and much more efficient for APH to create the Conference Photo Directory. Please upload your photo now or no later than Thursday, September 15. This upload feature is on the "My Account Menu" so you can get to it at any time.

We still accept photos via email. No later than Thursday, September 15, please email your photo to cj Madigan, our Conference Photo Directory designer. Your photo should be 300 dpi or higher resolution (minimum 2 by 3-inch portrait-style headshot, B/W or color). Please use this filename format: lastname-firstname-2016-imgc.ext

   Example 1: smith-tracy-2016-imgc.jpg
   Example 2: smith-tracy-2016-imgc.jpeg
   Example 3: smith-tracy-2016-imgc.tif

You'll be glad you participated when you see how useful the photo directory is. A bit of warning: if we don't receive your photo, we'll substitute a rather boring silhouette for your smiling face.
