ASHA Convention Registration Fees

We’re preparing for all scenarios this coming year and are planning the 2021 ASHA Convention as a hybrid in-person/virtual event. We are working to develop all-new registration fees to reflect this change to our event format. We appreciate your patience—please stay tuned for updates on the 2021 fees. Registration and housing reservations will open in August.

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.


All presenters (whether for in-person sessions or pre-recorded virtual sessions) are required to register for the ASHA Convention at thse rate that corresponds to their membership status as outlined above, and to arrange their own travel and accommodations, even if with special circumstances. If you are a presenter and not a member of ASHA (because you are not a speech-language pathologist and/or audiologist and therefore ineligible to join ASHA), please contact after you receive your acceptance letter to request special registration instructions. Notifications of presentation acceptance and nonacceptance are e-mailed in mid-July.

If you are a presenter who is a student in the field of audiology or speech-language pathology, you must be a current NSSLHA member to register at the NSSLHA/ASHA graduate student rate otherwise you will need to pay the non-member registration fee.

If you have any questions regarding your membership status or want to join ASHA or NSSLHA, please call the Action Center at 800-498-2071.


A special registration form is available (beginning August 1) that allows members to take advantage of a group discount. When seven or more members from the same workplace register, the eighth member's registration is complimentary. This group registration discount is available to ASHA members, new ASHA members, and NSSLHA/ASHA Graduate Student members. Please e-mail if you have questions about group registration. 


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.

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.
