The registration fee does not include hotel accommodations, transportation, meal functions, tours, or workshops.

Registration must be postmarked by February 28th to qualify for regular rates. Make your reservations early, as space is limited for tours, workshops, and meal functions. AIC membership dues for 2017 must be paid in full to qualify for member rates. Ticketed events are only available to individuals who are registered for the overall meeting. Daily registrants are entitled to register for ticketed events happening on the same day only; attendees planning to register for sessions or ticketed events scheduled on different days must register for the full meeting. AIC will be cashless on site. If you wish to purchase tickets onsite, please bring a credit/debit card or check book.
