2017 Midwinter Meeting January 20 - 24

Changes in Bundle registration for the 2017 Midwinter Meeting and Annual Conference


We’re introducing a new way to reward people who register for 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.)

Midwinter Meeting registrants will have access to Annual Conference registration and housing 24 hours before those 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.

This new system makes it possible for more members to save when they attend both events in 2017 and should lead to a smoother experience overall. 

I am a member and would like to register online or I am a non member and would not like to join at this time.
