Additional Tips for Registration

- Attention All Paper Presenters, Discussants, Roundtable Participants (anyone with their name on the program): There are no one-day registration options for anyone presenting a paper or participating on the program in some way.
- Membership Included: Non-Member registration packages include a one-year membership if you opt-in!
- Local Planning Practitioners: You must be from the Buffalo/Western New York area in order to qualify for the one-day local practitioner registration option, and attending for the purpose of obtaining CE credits. If you are participating somehow on the program, select the Faculty Registration option.

Registration for Attendees from Low Resourced Countries
- This registration fee is the same as for ACSP member students.
- Eligibility is based on the location of the home institution, not on temporary residences or guest institutions.
- The ACSP Conference Committee will maintain this practice including periodically updating the eligibility list.
- To register as an attendee from a low-resourced country, email email@example.com.

Letters for Visa Application or International Travel
If you need a formal letter for travel purposes, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the important details that should be included in the letter.
Optional Printed Program
The ACSP conference is attempting to "go green" on a gradual basis - eventually a conference without a printed program. We understand this is a transition from the norm, so for the next couple of years a printed program will remain optional for a small fee. The conference app (download ACSP2018) will remain free of charge for all participants and WiFi will be provided for all conference attendees. Be sure to select the print program option in your ticket selection as very limited quantities of extra programs will be available on-site.
Donate to FWIG & GPEIG Students to provide conference lunch tickets!
After you finalize your registration for the conference, you will find links in your confirmation email to make donations to the Faculty Women's Interest Group (FWIG) and the Global Planning Educator's Interest Group (GPEIG) to help offset the cost of subsidized student lunch tickets for these events. You can also use these links below to donate now!
