Special Rates
ASIST and Sister Society Members: Members in good standing of ASIST or one of our sister societies—the Special Libraries Association, the Medical Libraries Association, and the American Association of Law Libraries—qualify for member rates. Include the name of your association and your membership number on the registration form.

If you are not already a member of the ASIST family, sign up when you register and you will qualify for the membership rate. The total package—a one-year membership and admission to the conference—is less than the non-member rate for the conference alone.

First-timer: If this is your first ASIST conference OR if you have never taken an ASIST continuing education course you can save an extra $75 off your total registration fees if you sign up for the full conference and any full-day CE course.  This offer is not available at student or retiree rates.

One-day Rates: If you can't join us for the whole conference, take advantage of our special one-day rates! Early bird and member rates are also available on single-day registrations

Other: Student and retiree rates are available for both members and non-members of ASIST.

Special event fees are non-refundable.

Annual Banquet and Proceedings
Anyone registering for the full conference (except for students) will receive one admission ticket to the Awards Banquet, which will be held on Wednesday, November 20, 2002, and a copy of the Proceedings. Additional banquet tickets or copies of the Proceedings may be purchased on-site.

A Special Note to the Disabled
ASIST is committed to ensuring that no one with a disability is excluded, denied services, segregated, or otherwise treated differently from other conference attendees because of the absence of an auxiliary aid or service. If you are in need of such an aid or service as outlined in the Americans with Disabilities Act, please contact ASIST headquarters at 301-495-0900 or indicate the necessary items or services on the special needs line of the registration form.

The placement service assists ASIST members and meeting attendees in matching job openings with qualified candidates.  Whether looking for an entry-level position or a promotion, candidates will find the placement service an important element of their job search.  Employers will find that ASIST members provide high quality candidates.  This service is free to all participants.
