In-Person or Virtual = Same Great Price

In line with our commitment to inclusivity, we are dedicated to making the AAIA 33rd Annual Conference as accessible as possible while also providing you an immersive experience, no matter how you choose to participate.

That is why the registration fee is the same for both virtual and in-person attendees.

Our reasoning is based on three priorities for our members:  Engagement, Flexibility, and Value:

  • Engagement:  The AAIA is making a significant investment in technology to bring attendees together in an inviting hybrid environment to ensure all participants are engaged during every session. All attendees will have full access to view the presenters and on-screen presentations and ask questions during every educational session.

  • Flexibility:  We understand some members are not ready to travel or participate in group events.  

  • Value: We realize that some training budgets are still recovering from the past few years.  If travel costs aren't feasible for your organization, attend the conference virtually! 

Register early to save even more money.  Early-bird registration fees save you $100!
