AAAR 27th Annual Conference

October 20-24, 2008
Rosen Shingle Creek
Orlando, FL


Registration Instructions

AAAR offers a discounted registration fee if you register by August 18, 2008. Registration forms, including complete payment, must be received by this date to qualify for the early registration discount. Pre-registration ensures timely processing of your registration and helps avoid lengthy on-site lines. The pre-registration fees are lower than on-site due to the increased costs for an on-site registration including equipment, staff, and set-up. Please remember both attendees and presenters are required to pay registration fees.

Registration forms received after September 24, 2008 will not be processed. All registration received after this date will be taken to the meeting and processed as on-site registrants. The on-site registration fee will be applied.

Spouse/Guest Registration

Spouses/guests who are registered for the AAAR Annual Conference will receive admission to the continental breakfasts for the two Poster Sessions and admission to the Welcome and Exhibitor receptions only. The fee for a spouse or guest is $100.
