Registration FAQs

What does my registration fee cover?

Fees include attendance to all program sessions, general sessions and MuseumExpo. Additional fees may be required for committee meetings, workshops, ticketed events and tours. Meals are not provided with your registration fee. Please review the program for a detailed schedule.

I received a code for a discounted/complimentary registration. How do I register?

  • If you received a promotional code for a discounted registration online, please follow the instructions on your notification. If you registered before you received your voucher, contact Alliance registration to discuss your options.
  • Individuals who have received a certificate or other notification of complimentary registration must submit a registration form by fax or mail. The certificate or other notification must be attached to the completed registration form. Payment for any ticketed events must be included with the registration form.

Do I have to register online?

A printable registration form is available here. Registrations not completed through our online system (sent via mail, fax or e-mail) are subject to an additional $25 processing fee. To avoid this fee, register online. If you are unable to register online and have questions, contact Alliance registration.

I noticed your multiple deadlines. What do these mean?

To qualify for early bird rates, registration forms must be postmarked no later than March 3. Registrations postmarked after March 3 and received by April 25 are eligible for the advance rates. After April 25, registration is only available at the on-site rate both online and at the Washington State Convention Center. Do not mail or fax any registration forms after April 25.

In order to qualify for discounted rates, you must hold an individual Alliance membership or your institution must be a current Tier 3 Museum member. For more information, please contact Alliance registration.

I received my confirmation, but need a more detailed receipt for my registration.

Please contact Alliance registration and we will be happy to send you a receipt.

I just registered for the Annual Meeting. How will I be notified it was processed? 

All online registrants will receive a receipt within 24 hours of processing. Registrations sent via mail, fax or e-mail are processed in the order in which they are received and can take up to two weeks to process.

Please review your receipt carefully. To report a correction or discrepancy, contact Alliance registration at 202-289-9131.
