HOD and national
officer elections and are an excellent way for AMSA
get involved nationally. Registration fees are waived
for selected committee members.
Share a Hotel Room
Consider sharing a room (up to 4 per room) with others in your chapter, or visit our convention community on Inspiration Exchange to contact other attendees who may also be looking for a way to save.
Drive and Avoid Expensive Travel Fees
When location allows, our members enjoy very inexpensive travel by teaming up with others and hitting the road. If you attend school within 6 hours of the convention, consider the drive and awesome savings!
All you need to do is ask. You may be able to have your registration
fees fully or partially funded if you ask your school to support your
