Conference Connections   * New in 2018 *

Over the past two years, members of the Graduate Student Council and the Executive Committee have been gathering information about the professional development needs and interests of graduate student members of AAAL. Based on input from individuals and focus groups, in addition to academic professional development, we learned that some student members would like to have opportunities to make social connections with more senior members of AAAL. As a result, AAAL will trial a small-scale project of social opportunities at the 2018 AAAL Conference. These opportunities could be referred to as Conference Connections.  For more information, please click here.

For registrants who elect not to pay at the time of registration, payment is due within 30 days of registration or by February 16, whichever comes first. Registrants who have not cancelled by the cancellation deadline of February 16 will be accessed an additional $30 late payment fee. Payment is due immediately for those attendees who register after February 16. Please contact with questions or to request an exemption of this policy.
