  • Registration is open for all AWS active members

  • To register, use the link in the email, once live, a link to register will be on this page
  • Every member who would like to attend the 2022 National Conference must register and pay the registration fee ($530/person) during this week.

Members will receive the digital conference brochure detailing speakers and sessions.

Everyone who is registered and paid in full will select sessions. You can register for sessions online through the link provided. Or, for a $20 service charge, you can send your session choices to the National Office for manual entry.
This is not first-come, first-served, so you have the full four days to make your choices. Once the window closes to select sessions, we will randomly assign sessions using a program specifically designed to give everyone the same number of first, second, and third choices. We used this session selection procedure successfully for many years, so it should be familiar to past attendees.
If you fail to select sessions by the close of the allotted time frame, you can still choose your sessions at a later date from those with available seats. If you have questions or difficulty, please contact the National Office.
Following the close of the session-selection process, attendees will be notified of their session assignments.

If you are dissatisfied with your session assignments and wish to cancel your conference registration, please notify the National Office by August 31. We will refund your registration fee, and you may cancel your hotel reservation at no charge.
