Americans for the Arts would like to say thank you to all of our professional members by offering special discounts. There are designated professional member rates available for both main convention and preconference registrations. This year’s Annual Convention also features a members-only reception. Members will enjoy spending time networking with friends and colleagues before exploring the city on a free night.

Short on time, but still want to take advantage of the awesome convention programming? Only pay for one day!
One-day registrations are available for $200. You can use a one-day registration to attend the events on either Friday, June 14; Saturday, June 15; or Sunday, June 16. Limit one one-day registration per person; one-day registrations cannot be combined to create a two-day registration. One-day registrations also include any special events occurring on those dates. (Please note that some special events require additional registration and separate fees).
PRECONFERENCE REGISTRANTS ALSO ATTENDING ANNUAL CONVENTION
Take $100 off the preconference rate when you purchase preconference and convention registrations together.
PRECONFERENCE ONE-DAY REGISTRATION DISCOUNT
We encourage all preconference registrants to stay and enjoy the rest of the convention. However, if you can only join us for the remainder of Friday, June 14, you can take advantage of a special discounted one-day registration rate only available to preconference registrants and only available for Friday, June 14. Take $50 off the one-day registration rate, and stay for the rest of Friday afternoon including the Opening Keynote and Opening Reception for only $150.

Cut your housing costs in half! Interested in sharing a room with another conference attendee to help reduce the cost of attending the convention? Just mark the Roommate Referral Box on the registration form and we'll send you a list of other interested attendees.
To be eligible for the program, your registration form must be received no later than April 26, 2013. Hotel rooms fill fast so we suggest that all attendees make housing arrangements when they register and once a roommate is identified, cancel the reservation that is no longer needed.
Americans for the Arts is pleased to offer a limited number of volunteer opportunities to help offset the cost of the convention registration fees for current Americans for the Arts professional members. Volunteers who work during the convention receive a discounted registration rate of $250 for the full convention. However, in order to be considered you must register at the prevailing convention rate. You will be reimbursed post-convention for the difference after successful completion of your volunteer duties.
Please note: Volunteers will be given assignments prior to arrival. However, Americans for the Arts reserves the right to change or make new assignments as needed. Volunteer recipients must submit a social security number or a Federal ID number in order to receive their reimbursement.
