Methods of Payments & Policies

Registration Policies

  • All individuals, including program presenters, attending the convention must pay a registration fee. Program presenters must be registered by 11 December, 2020 or programs will be reviewed for removal from the convention program and spaces offered to presenters on the alternate list. Individual presenters on group programs that are not registered will be deleted. Research paper and research poster authors who will not be present at Convention must be listed on the proposal as authors, not presenters. Research paper and poster presenters who are not registered by 11 December 2020 will be changed to authors.
  • Student rates are for full-time, currently enrolled students only. You must be an ACPA Graduate or Undergraduate Student Member to qualify. Those who are employed full-time are not eligible for student rates.
  • To register a Guest, please email [email protected] for registration assistance. Guest registration is $100 per guest. Guest registration does not include Opening or Closing Sessions, Plenary Sessions, education sessions, or other scheduled events during the day that require a one-day, two-day, or full Convention registration. Guest registration only includes a name badge that will provide access to the general Convention venues and the option to attend open, non-ticketed evening socials/receptions if you wish.
  • In order to qualify for member rates, membership with ACPA must be valid through 17 March, 2021. You must have your own individual member ID number. You will not get a member rate by using your college/university or organizational member ID number.
  • Registrants with a one-day pass are permitted to upgrade to a full registration. However ACPA’s cancellation policies will apply for those who need to change their order from “full” to “one-day” registration.
