To add more flexibility during this challenging time and based on feedback we have heard from members, we are continuing the early bird rate, and will offer the lowest registration rates all the way through to the conference dates in Washington, DC. We hope this provides more reassurance and flexibility for your planning.

We understand the apprehension about making plans to attend a conference, so in addition to making the lowest registration rates available for everyone, we are also developing plans to ensure that everyone will have an opportunity to participate in the AATA 2020 Conference in some shape or form, be it in person or virtually.

Virtual Conference Series News

We hope to make the registration process for the virtual conference series available in the late summer or early fall. So please stay tuned for more information about that. If you do not plan at all to attend the conference in Washington, DC then you should not register at this time.

As always, the workshops and advanced practice courses for the conference in Washington, DC are very popular, and the lowest rates are still available for those sessions too! Some of these sessions are already full, so if you have not already registered and hope to participate in one of these experiential sessions, be sure to sign up soon!

New, More Flexible Refund Policy

Due to the unprecedented nature of this year’s conference, we have revised the policy to include a refund for attendees who may need to cancel their participation for any reason related to Covid-19. This will now ensure attendees that whether AATA has to cancel or they have to cancel for any reason related to the pandemic, they will be able to either receive a full refund or they can divert part or all of the fees to the AATA virtual conference series.

Check Your Email for a Conference Survey

If you are a member, a presenter or a registered conference attendee, you should have received a survey invitation via email on July 9th. We welcome your input about the conference this year, and the information you provide will help to inform our planning. So please complete your survey as soon as possible.

Remember, the AATA 2020 Conference is Your Way this year! We look forward to your participation. Review the conference blog for the latest news on the program.
