As we are hard at work planning what we know will be an outstanding ASA Aging in America Conference, we are also, along with the rest of the country and the world, keeping an eye on the federal budget crisis and looming fiscal cliff. We know that many of our members and conference presenters and attendees are either government employees or working in settings dependent upon federal budget support, and whose budgeting and travel plans are already being impacted by the possibility of sequestration.
If you are planning to attend the 2013 Aging in America conference, but are unable to get your travel plans approved until a resolution is reached regarding the federal budget, please contact us. We will be happy to work with you beyond the December 17 early registration and presenter registration deadline to ensure that you can attend AiA at the lowest possible rate.
Another option for attendees with tight budgets is to apply to be a volunteer. Volunteers attend AiA for up to 50% off in exchange for volunteering for one day of the conference. We do our best to accommodate your schedule when you select a day to volunteer so that you won’t miss sessions and events you are looking forward to. Apply now.
