After January 20, 2017, cancellation requests will be forwarded to the conference committee to determine if any refund will be granted. If a refund is approved, a minimum $100 administrative fee will be charged. Registration fees for optional functions are nonrefundable.

Registration fees paid to the Academy may be deductible for federal income tax purposes as ordinary and necessary business expenses.

Registration Categories

Full Conference

Includes all meeting materials, lunches, continental breakfasts, and entry to the Welcome Reception. Students, residents, and candidates who attend the meeting for credits must register in the appropriate category for their credential. Those who register in the Student/Resident/Candidate category will not receive continuing education credits.


Each table or booth includes two Exhibitor badges (a value of $300 each) with the option to purchase up to two additional Exhibitor badges for $300 each. One of the badges you receive with each table or booth is a Full Conference registration, which allows the registrant to receive continuing education credits. The individual holding this badge must be a full-time employee of the exhibiting company. Other badges may be upgraded to Full Conference registrations with the payment of an additional fee. For example, if the Exhibitor badge is valued at $300 and the member registration is $565, payment of the $265 difference entitles your full-time employee to earn continuing education credits.

Spouse and Children

The spouse/partner/significant other and children of registered attendees must complete a registration form to attend sessions or visit the Exhibit Hall. Registered individuals may purchase tickets for guests, their spouse, or family members. Children 10 and under are free, and children ages 11 to 18 pay $135. Those over the age of 18 must pay the full applicable registration fee. Everyone attending the Welcome Reception must be registered or purchase a reception ticket. Children 10 and under are allowed in the Exhibit Hall but must be under adult supervision. A Spouse, significant other, or domestic partner who is an industry professional must register as a full attendee (member or non-member depending on membership status). Those attending the meeting to earn continuing education credits for any professional organization may not register under this category.
