It is now possible to preregister and book hotel accommodations for the 125th Annual Meeting in Boston, MA, January 6-9, 2011.
Members can preregister by logging in to member services and clicking the link to “Meeting Registration” on the main page Members Services page.
Nonmembers can join the AHA now to receive discounted member rates, or register online by creating a nonmember account on the AHA website. Once a nonmember account is created, click “Register for the meeting” on the account creation confirmation page or click “Meeting Registration” on the “My Account” page.
For the 2011 meeting, the AHA has combined the registration and hotel reservation process. After preregistering for the meeting, attendees will receive an acknowledgment of preregistration that will include information on making a hotel reservation. This confirmation will have a link to make a reservation via customized web site or by calling the housing service directly. Only Annual Meeting attendees who have first completed the meeting registration process will be permitted to make hotel reservations at the AHA’s meeting rates, and the housing service will ask attendees to supply their badge number (which will be included in the meeting preregistration confirmation). The process is designed to ensure that the deeply discounted AHA meeting rates are reserved for those who support the Annual Meeting—its attendees and exhibitors—and not for tourists and others who want to book a low-priced room in Boston. A link to housing will also be located in the Registration Resource Center.
See the AHA’s Annual Meeting web page for more information on hotels, venue locations, registration, exhibit hall details, transportation, and the Job Center.
