Registration for the AUPO and UAO Annual Meetings and Educating the Educators is now open. Online registration is encouraged.

If you must pay by check, you can download a paper registration form here.


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.


Non-member ophthalmologists may attend the Annual Meeting and/or Educating the Educators meeting as Professional Guests. For the Annual Meeting, Professional Guests must be sponsored by an AUPO member (Chair) that is pre-registered and attending the Annual Meeting. Professional guests are welcome to register for Educating the Educators without a member sponsor. Members will have the opportunity to register professional guest(s) when completing their own registration, or may do so separately.

Administrators who have not paid University Administrators in Ophthalmology (UAO) dues, should pay the UAO Non-Member registration fee.


The AUPO block at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina hotel will be available once registration opens. The AUPO housing reservation link will be included in the online registration confirmation. For registrations that are processed manually with a paper registration form, the hotel link will be included in the registration confirmation email that will be sent after registration and payment has been processed.

Please note that paper registrations may experience a one- to two-day delay in receiving the housing reservation link during heavy registration periods.

PLEASE BE ADVISED: Pre-registration is required to be eligible for the AUPO hotel group rate.

Please be considerate of your fellow meeting attendees and also help avoid attrition costs by only reserving the room nights that you need.
