Ticketed Add-Ons (In-Person Registration Only)

The following optional ticketed items may be added to your in-person registration to enhance your experience:

Event Ticket Price
Pre-Convention Workshops* $80/each; tickets for workshops sponsored by WSLHA are $40 for members of that state association.
Short Courses (2-hour sessions) $30/each; SIG members may purchase discounted tickets to SIG-sponsored Short Courses for only $15/each.
ASHA Eats Card $30 (Worth $50 towards food or drinks at any eatery or concession stand at the convention center.)
ASHFoundation Fundraiser Reception $135/each
ASHA-PAC Reception (ASHA members only) $75 suggested donation/person


A guest registration option is available for $75 per person. A guest is an accompanying person who is neither an ASHA member (and not eligible to be), nor a related professional, and is attending the ASHA 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.

Guests may not register themselves; guest registrations are affiliated with a fully registered attendee who must accompany the guest at all times. Guest passes are an official badge option for ASHA members and related professionals to add onto their registration for individuals who are ineligible for ASHA membership. Guest passes are not to be used as a substitute for Exhibit Hall–only passes.

Exhibit Hall-Only Passes

Exhibit hall-only passes, for members and related professionals who only want to browse the exhibit hall and do not want to attend any education sessions, are available for purchase online through registration for $75 beginning November 1 or onsite during the in-person ASHA Convention.

2024 Virtual-Only Registration Rates

The ASHA Convention is primarily an in-person event, but does include a library of on-demand/virtual poster presentations, technical sessions and technical demos. The slides and audio from a limited selection of 1-hour oral seminars taking place at the in-person ASHA Convention will also be broadcast live to the virtual platform. (These sessions will not be recorded.)

Virtual sessions are available for anyone to view between November 20–December 10, 2024; however, you can only claim continuing education credit for them if you are registered. Virtual-only registration closes on December 7, 2024.

Membership Category

Virtual-Only Rate (8/1–12/7)

Life Member $85
All other membership categories, including non-members $99


All presenters (whether for in-person sessions or pre-recorded virtual sessions) are required to register for the ASHA Convention at the rate that corresponds to their membership status as outlined above, and to arrange their own travel and accommodations, even if under 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 National NSSLHA or ASHA Graduate Student member to register at the student rate, otherwise you will need to pay the non-member registration fee.

Group Registration Discount

When groups of 7 or more attendees from the same workplace register, they will receive the 8th registration free. The group discount applies to ASHA members, ASHA Affiliates, and NSSLHA members only. The group discount does not apply to Pre-Convention Workshops, Short Courses, or special event tickets. To receive the group discount, payment must be made in one transaction (check or credit card). The discount will be applied to the lesser registration fee. Badges will be mailed to each registrant at the address provided for the group.
