The 19th AATK Annual Meeting Online Registration

2014-07-29 00:17

Dear all,


We are pleased to announce that the online registration site for the upcoming 19th AATK AnnualMeeting at Boston University is now available.


Please note that the registration fee is now raised to $75 (from $50) and the room rate to $25 (from $15).  The registration fee was $50 last ten years, and it was deemed necessary to make adjustment to reflect rising costs of lodging and other expenses of the annual meeting.  The decision was made at the Executive Board in November 2013. This would be a very small step towards the financial independence of theAATK in the long run. We would greatly appreciate your understanding and continued support.
