AABA will host an annual meeting that has two components:

  • In-person events in Denver from March 23-26, 2022
  • Online events that include live-streamed components of the Denver meeting and a suite of live virtual sessions and events from March 28 - April 1, 2022.

The registration fees for the 2022 meeting are set to support this dual meeting configuration, with nimbleness to adapt to the pandemic as needed. The structure and extent of our in-person meeting in Denver will be shaped by the public health guidelines set by state and local governments.

The AABA has long set our meeting registration rates with the aim of breaking even between the costs of the event and the funds we raise through registration fees. We do not use our meetings to raise general funds for the organization.

While the exact costs of the 2022 annual meeting are uncertain given the dual format, the live-streaming component, and the need to build in ways to address the uncertainty that the Covid-19 pandemic carries. Balancing these financial considerations along with an understanding that our community is impacted by the global economic situation, we decided to continue to use the rates from our 2019 meeting in Cleveland. The 2022 registration fees are listed below.

Registration Fees paid before or on 27 February 2022/ registration fees paid after 27 Feb 2022:

  • Regular/Special Member $190 / $238
  • Regular Postdoc/Contingent Faculty Member* $160 / $200
  • Nonmember $400 / $500
  • Nonmember Symposium Participant $190 / $238
  • Student Member $80 / $100
  • Student Nonmember $155 / $194

  • Member from a Developing Nation** $35 / $44
  • Nonmember from a Developing Nation** $50 / $63

*AABA considers this category to include those in temporary postdoctoral positions or non-tenure line faculty positions making less than $56,000 per year.

** These reduced rates are available to residents of all countries classified as a Middle- or Low-income economy country according to the definitions of the World Bank.
