To receive AUPO or UAO member meeting rates at the time of registration, dues for the July 1, 2016 - June 30, 2017 membership period must have been received and processed. Check payments for dues may require extra days for posting to the member's account, which may delay Annual Meeting registration. Please ensure that dues have been paid well in advance of registration.


All attendees are encouraged to bring a spouse or personal guest to the Annual Meeting. Spouse/personal guest registration includes daily continental breakfast and coffee breaks, admission to the Thursday evening welcome reception, as well as the Friday evening reception and banquet. Guests can be registered online when meeting attendees complete their own registration, or submitted separately.
