Registration Rates

Advanced registration is now closed. On-site registration will be available beginning Wednesday, March 13.

The prices shown here are for discounted online registration. If you will be registering by fax or mail, add $25 to the price.

Registration Discounts

There are several ways to save on conference registration: Early Bird registration; Group registration rates for 6 or more individuals; and discounts for AMS members, adult learners, and volunteers. Take advantage of these special discounts and enjoy savings on your registration.

Early Bird Registration

No matter who you are, the best rates are available if you register early! The Early Bird registration discount is effective through Friday, January 11, 2013. By registering with Early Bird rates, you can save up to $125. Rates listed below.

Group Rates

AMS offers discounts for attendees registering as a group of 6 or more. Register a group of 6 to 10 individuals and receive 10% off each registration. Register 11 or more and receive 15% off. To receive these discounts, registrations for the entire group must be completed at the same time, either online or using the downloadable registration form (for mail or fax).

AMS-member schools and AMS-affiliated teacher education programs should use their organization’s login ID number when completing a group registration online and make sure to have the AMS ID numbers for any teachers that wish to receive the member discount.

Member, Adult Learner, and Volunteer Discounts

Members
AMS members receive discounted rates. To register for the conference online, members must log in.

Non-members and individuals with lapsed memberships may enjoy these discounts by joining or renewing before registering online to receive member pricing. Joining and renewing cannot be completed as part of the online conference registration process.

Adult Learners
Adult learners are individuals who are enrolled in an AMS-affiliated teacher education program at the time of their conference registration and who have an AMS membership through that program. They receive additional conference registration discounts. To register for the conference online, adult learners must log in.

Volunteers
Conference volunteers fulfilling a 2-hour shift receive 10% off their conference registration; a 4-hour shift entitles volunteers to 20% off their full conference registration.
