    ASHA Member Registration

    To register at a member rate, you must indicate your membership number on the registration form. Please make sure that your dues are current. If they are not, your registration will be processed at the non-member registration fee.

    NSSLHA/ASHA Grad Student Member

    This rate is for current NSSLHA or ASHA Grad Student members. Students enrolled in a bachelor's, master's, or doctorate program may join NSSLHA and receive the NSSLHA member fee. Doctoral students who hold a Certificate of Clinical Competence may initiate their ASHA Graduate Student membership in order to receive the Graduate Student rate. If you have any questions regarding your membership or want to join ASHA or NSSLHA, please call the Action Center at 800-498-2071.

    New ASHA Member

    Individuals who have been a member of ASHA for four years or less are considered New ASHA Members.

    Related Professionals

    Related Professionals are individuals who do not belong to ASHA, are not audiologists or speech-language pathologists, and want to attend Convention for educational programs to enhance their professional knowledge (i.e., a special-ed teacher, an occupational therapist, etc.).


    International member affiliates and members of the SAC, RCSLT, SPA, IALP, CPLOL, ISA, and SBFa are included in this category.


    A  guest is an accompanying person who is not an ASHA member (and not eligible to be), not a related professional, and attending the Convention in a social capacity only. Guest registration is offered so that friends or family members of registered attendees may accompany them socially in the Exhibit Hall and at special events (tickets may be required for certain special events or receptions) and does not include attendance at any education sessions (oral or poster). Guests may not register themselves; guest registrations must be affiliated with a fully registered attendee who must accompany the guest at all times. Guest passes are not to be used in lieu of Exhibit Hall–only passes, available November 1, which are an official limited-registration option for ASHA members and related professionals.


    Presenters must register for the Convention at the appropriate membership status rate as listed above. Notifications of presentation acceptance and nonacceptance are e-mailed in mid-July. If you are accepted as a Convention presenter and are not a member of ASHA (and not an audiologist or speech-language pathologist), please contact on August 1, when registration opens, to receive special instructions for registering.

    One-day Registration

    For those with limited time, a One-day Registration option is available for purchase either online or onsite. One-day badges will not be mailed to registrants in advance; registrants may pick up their badge and materials at registration onsite after 3 p.m. the day before they are attending. (For example, if you plan to attend the Convention on Friday, you may pick up your badge and materials any time after 3 p.m. on Thursday. If you register for one day onsite, please do not come to the registration area earlier than 3 p.m. the day before you plan to attend the Convention.

    One-day registrants may only claim CEUs for sessions held on the day they selected to attend the Convention when registering.
