2016 Conference Presentation Deadlines Posted and New Payment Policy – NEW INFORMATION

The deadlines for ATMAE’s 2016 Annual Conference presentations are now available. On Friday, January 29th we will be publishing and sending all members the full set of policies and procedures in our call for Abstracts.

Also, please note a new Presenter registration payment policy. Because of the number of late cancellations of presenters, we are adding the option for people to register early at a discount (beyond the early bird discount). If you have funding this year that could pay for next year’s conference this could be an advantage to you!

We are also establishing a strict cut-off for payment (or Purchase Order from your school) for all presenters. If payment is not made by September 2nd, the slot will be opened to other potential presenters.
