Congress fees

All attendees, including speakers, presenters, panelists and those chairing or attending a session, must pay the general Congress fee. The revenue collected from general Congress fees allows us to keep the annual meeting format viable by ensuring that infrastructure and services are in place. 

Association meeting fees

Attendees must also pay the association meeting fees, which are collected by the Federation on behalf of the associations. All of the funds collected from these meeting fees are given directly to the associations. Generally, the associations use these funds to cover the cost of planning and holding their sessions at Congress.

Association membership fees

Membership fees are paid directly to your association and are not collected at Congress. Contact your association directly concerning your membership fees, or for information on your membership status.

President’s Receptions

Non-registered conference attendees cause a significant loss of revenue and can result in increases in registration fees overall. By not paying, they withhold much-needed support from their own associations while penalizing their paying colleagues.
