Registration Categories
Registration categories are determined by membership status at the time of the Conference. All AZA members must renew their 2019 membership dues prior to registering.  Need to renew your membership? Contact AZA Membership Services.
AZA Individual,  Commercial Members, or Conservation Partners An individual’s registration fee is determined by membership status at the time of the Conference. AZA members must be in good standing and dues paid through 2019. Employees at an AZA-accredited zoo or aquarium or related facility must be an individual member of AZA in order to receive the member rate.

Please note that individuals in the Friend membership category do not receive a discount on Conference registration and therefore will receive Non-member registration rates.

Consultants or individuals representing a commercial entity that is not a current Commercial Member, Conservation Partner, Exhibitor, or Conference Sponsor, are NOT eligible to attend the conference.
