Student Volunteers
Any full-time student who is a member of AASLH may volunteer to work eight hours during the Annual Meeting in exchange for a complimentary full meeting registration. Each volunteer will be assigned to work two, four-hour shifts during the meeting. For more information on student volunteer opportunities, please contact Natalie Flammia at

Special Events, Workshops, and Laboratories
Tickets are available in advance and require preregistration. AASLH reserves the right to cancel workshops, labs, and special events if minimum numbers are not met. Refunds will be made after the meeting for any canceled event.

Program Updates
Attendees will receive a program update at the registration desk with any program or activity changes. The update will also list meeting room locations for all sessions and activities. In addition, AASLH will be offering a free conference app to keep attendees informed of any updates or changes. AASLH reserves the right to make changes in programming as necessary.

AASLH is committed to providing access to all individuals attending the Annual Meeting. Please mark the appropriate box on the registration form if you have special needs that require our consideration. Send your request to AASLH no later than July 26 so that we have adequate time to prepare for your accommodations.
