Annual Meeting Registration

Details for the Annual Conference Registration & Membership Application

Anyone who plans on attending the annual conference may use the online registration form, regardless of whether you are or wish to be an ASTE member.

Your order may be paid online through PayPal or using a credit card. Online processing is immediate and a detailed receipt of your payment will be emailed to you. Payment can also be made through postal mail using a check, money order or credit card. The processing time through postal mail is approximately two weeks.

If you wish to pay for membership and conference registration separately (e.g. you pay membership and your institution pays for conference registration), you must go through the online form twice. First go through the online form and complete only the membership portion of the order form.  After payment is received you will receive an email receipt (This is immediate when paying online, two weeks through postal mail). Next, log back into the online form and complete the conference registration portion of the order form.  The system will know that you have already paid to be a 2019 ASTE member and will have you register for the conference at the discounted membership rate.
