You may choose to pay online using our secure payment gateway, or send your payment by check. No matter your form of payment, your registration will be saved and you will get an instant confirmation/invoice by email. You will be able to update your registration at a later date with specific meeting and meal selections. Simply keep track of your original confirmation email to re-enter the registration site and update your record.

Members will need to have a current membership to utilize the Member registration rate.  If you have not renewed your membership for the 2017-18 Membership year, and continue with registration, you will be invoiced for your Membership amount.

Please Note:  When you register with the online link, you will only be registering for the meeting (not renewing your membership.) Please, make sure that you have updated your APPE Membership to register at the membership rate.  Members who have lapsed memberships at the time of Registration will be invoiced for their Membership Renewal.

ALL INDIVIDUALS ON THE PROGRAM ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE A PAID REGISTRATION, unless specifically notified or arranged by the APPE offices.  All presenters must have paid for their registration prior to the Opening Reception of the Annual Meeting.  Participants who have not paid for their registration will not be allowed to submit for future Annual Meeting Programs and will be invoiced for the registration amount.
