Annual Meeting Registration Information
Register early and take advantage of special discounts!
Don’t miss out on the AAOMS 100th Anniversary offer*: Those who register within the first 100 days of 2018 registration being open – before 11 p.m. CDT on May 31 – receive $100 off the general registration fee for next year’s Annual Meeting in Boston, Mass.
AAOMS fellows/members also save $200 off the 2018 onsite registration fee when registering by July 1 or $100 off when registering between July 2 and July 31 (prices increase at 11 p.m. CDT.)
Advance registration is strongly recommended as it offers the best chance of enrolling in the sessions of your choice, and it will save you time when you arrive in Chicago.
Register online or mail or fax a completed registration form to the AAOMS headquarters office. Children and spouses may be registered as guests under the attendee’s registration. Note: Attendees registered as guests will not receive continuing education credit for any sessions.
*Some restrictions apply. Registrants who cancel and do not attend the 2018 Annual Meeting will become ineligible for this offer. Saturday-only registrants and 2018 Annual Meeting attendees for whom registration is complimentary are not eligible for this offer. Offer is non-transferable.

If you need to change your registration after you receive the confirmation, please fax a copy of the confirmation with a note of the changes and your payment information to the AAOMS registration department at 847-678-6279.
