We are opening attendee registration the week of August 21st! Conference rates have not increased, but we have added a ticket price for the social event ($15) in the ticket options. This will help to cover some extra expense, and provide a needed head count to coordinate with the Mystic Aquarium and the caterer.

Ticket options include full 2-day conference, 1-day only registrations, ASSP member and non-member rates, and reduced rates for students and retirees. Anyone planning to attend the social, including Speakers, should select a ticket option including the Social.

Regular rates kick in October 1st, so take advantage of the early bird! On line registration will cut off on October 25th, which our food and beverage head count will be based on. On site registrations will be accepted on the days of the PDC.
