General Registration Information and Fees
Have a limited budget for attending or sending staff to professional meetings? Shop and compare -- you'll find no better value for your money than the highly rated APBA convention!
Who can attend? Anyone with an interest in the practice of ABA is welcome to attend the convention, but current APBA members enjoy substantially reduced fees. Membership is not included with convention registration. If you’re not already a member, join today to save on convention fees and enjoy the many other benefits of membership. APBA has memberships for individuals in several categories (sorry, no group or organization memberships).
