We also anticipate offering remote sessions via the Hopin platform used at NASSH 2021 to accommodate those unable or reluctant to travel to Chicago for any reason.

Registration Fees for NASSH 2022

NASSH 2022 is a unique moment in our organization’s history:  not only do we hope to return to a partially in-person conference for the first time since 2019, but this will be our first attempt at a hybrid conference.  Further, and most importantly, this conference marks the 50th Anniversary of NASSH.  Given all of these elements and extensive feedback from the membership, the organizers have settled on a tiered fee structure as outlined below:

  • All remote registrations:  $25
  • 1stTime NASSH attendees (in-person):  $0
  • Returning student registrations (in-person):  $100
  • Returning retired/under-employed registrations (in-person): $200
  • Returning regular registration (in-person):  $325

These are base fees. There may be additional fees added for credit card usage and a possible registration fee insurance policy allowing a full fee refund for any cancellation.  In-person registration fees include a reception, three lunches, the closing banquet, and various coffee breaks.

In full transparency, NASSH has decided to run this conference at a financial loss so that as many people as possible, particularly first-time attendees, are able to come to the conference after some challenging years to celebrate our anniversary.  Our original projections anticipated charging each registrant roughly $325 in order to break even on the costs of the event.  In order to move towards a day when all first-time attendees are able to have their registration fee reduced, we will begin a small campaign to raise those funds at a later point.  Students who present papers in-person at the conference may also be eligible for a small stipend from the Roberta Park Fund.

Registration will open in March 2022.
