Before you begin:

  • An AAFS Account is required to register for the AAFS Annual Conference.
  • This year's event will return to an all in-person format and will not offer a virtual component as we did in 2021 and 2022.
  • If you are registering as a non-member student, or as a member of an affiliate organization (AFTE, IAI, IAAI), you will be asked to provide documentation showing eligibility for the special registration rate. We recommend you have that ready prior to starting your registration.
  • AAFS Member Applicants and Trainee Affiliates who register will be held as pending until your 2023 eligibility is confirmed.
