All presenters must pay conference registration fees and have a registration badge. Please explain this policy to your co-presenters. There are no presenter registration discounts available. We cannot pay an honorarium or expenses for presenting breakout sessions at the conference, but hope that the intangible benefits of being a part of our educational programming make the effort worthwhile for presenters.
Persons presenting at the conference are expected to use material and language that does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, color, ethnicity, religion, physical ability, and/or sexual orientation.
AASA does not pay ANY honoraria, speaker fees, or travel expenses to breakout session speakers.
The individual submitting the abstract is considered the primary contact.
