2021 Virtual Annual Meeting Frequently Asked Questions
When will the virtual meeting be held?
The meeting will be held Sunday, April 18–Thursday, April 22, 2021, and will be broadcast live online based on Eastern Standard Time (EST).
What is the registration deadline?
The regular registration deadline for the meeting is March 19, 2021. After March 19, late registrations will be accepted through April 22. To obtain the best registration rates, plan to register by the March 19 deadline.
Does my membership need to be current in order to attend at the ARRS member rate?
Yes, to receive the discounted member registration rates, your ARRS membership must be current at the time of registration as well as for the duration of the meeting. If your ARRS membership has lapsed or will lapse between the date of registration and the conclusion of the meeting, you must either renew your membership or pay the nonmember registration fees. Discounted meeting registration fees are a benefit for current ARRS members.
Can I become an ARRS member to take advantage of registration savings?
Absolutely! Nonmembers may apply for membership and receive the virtual annual meeting member registration fee discount. Nonmembers should submit a membership application with the virtual annual meeting registration form by fax or mail prior to April 12, 2021 to receive the member registration fee discount. After April 12, you must register for the virtual annual meeting at the nonmember registration rate.
Will I receive a registration confirmation?
Registration confirmations are emailed to registrants. It is important to provide your email address with your registration materials to ensure receipt of your confirmation and any updates regarding the meeting. Make sure the email address provided is set up to accept messages from ARRS so your virtual annual meeting communications do not go to a SPAM or junk mail folder or become blocked entirely.
