Questions about registration? Email!

NOTE: There is no wifi in the presentation rooms or conference rooms. People staying at the hotel can get wifi in their rooms but there is no wifi provided by the conference (due to the significant costs associated with purchasing wifi from the hotel).

Family members attending a single session?

Yes, they can 100% attend and should register but it’s slightly different.   To register, all they’ll need to do is come to the 4th floor Exhibit Hall (where all registration happens) about 25-30 minutes before the session they want to attend. Tell the people at the on-site registration desk that they’d like a single session (90 minute) “family” pass and how many passes they need. They’ll make them a pass on the spot and the charge is $15 for each pass (less than the regular rate).  

Family passes are NOT for fellow students on a presentation, not for faculty or grad students wishing to see a single session in which a student or colleague is presenting. These passes are for family (in no way affiliated with the conference or submissions at the conference) who want to see their child/partners single presentation (90 minutes maximum).


  • Pre-Registration closes about four weeks before the conference (March 22nd, 2024). All registration after that time will be subject to regular registration rates.
  • You can register a group of people all at once and pay on one invoice if you’d like too! You will need to know the names, emails, and affiliations for all people you want to register, and have them separated by type (undergraduate, grad student, faculty). You can then register them under the GROUP REGISTRATION OPTION which will let you search for them by name, see if they need to update membership, and add any new people to the system. The MPA Executive Officer has specific instructions on how to do this if you need help.
  • Registrations cannot be switched with other attendees.
  • We DO NOT REPRINT BADGES. If you forget or lose your badge, you will need to go back and get it or re-register on site at the conference rate.
