How can I save on conference registration?

There are multiple ways to save on registration. Foremost is by be holding an APBS Membership. APBS Membership entitles members to a significant discount on registration. View the Registration Fees here. If you are not already an APBS Member, you may add a membership to your registration to receive this discount.

In addition, completing your registration before the early bird end date of January 10, 2022 also offers savings and there is a small discount when completing your registration prior to Registration Close on April 1, 2022.

Finally, there will be a limited number of In Person Volunteer Opportunities for which registration is waived. View the Volunteer Information here. The waived registration includes the conference on Thursday and Friday only - not the In Person Workshops on Wednesday and/or Saturday.
