Changes in Bundle registration

We’re introducing a new system that makes it possible for more members to save when they attend both the Midwinter Meeting and the Annual Conference & Exhibition in any given year. If you register for the 2017 Midwinter Meeting, after Midwinter you will receive a personalized discount code applicable to Annual Conference registration. (The discount will be equivalent to the past Bundle Registration savings. See rates on this page.) Midwinter Meeting registrants will have access to Annual Conference registration and housing 24 hours before they open to everyone else, and will get plenty of advance notice of their priority registration date and time. The usual blocks of housing will be reserved. Please visit this page on the ALA website to read more about the change.
