As a thank-you for volunteering for one day, ASA offers 50% off of your registration to attend On Aging 2022. Apply by February 29 to will receive 50% off our standard rate, and after February 28, you will receive 50% off our late registration rates (however, we cannot guarantee that we will still be accepting volunteers at that point).
When you complete the application, you can select your requested days and times for your volunteer hours. Please note that the cost of membership is separate from the cost of conference attendance, though they may be purchased together. There are many benefits of membership, including year-round programming and networking opportunities.
Paying for ASA membership all at once can be really difficult. We offer all members the ability to pay for their membership on a monthly basis. This can be done online at the time of purchase and costs as little as $8.33 per month for students and retired professionals. For assistance, email firstname.lastname@example.org. To access the monthly payment option, you must purchase the membership first and separate from your conference registration.
