In any approach to fees, we consider members first and foremost, but also the sustainability of the organization. Raising fees is a careful consideration that goes through multiple layers of evaluation beginning with due diligence by our AOM’s Finance Committee leading to a recommendation that is discussed and weighed by the full Board of Governors. While conference registration fees have stayed stable over the past decade, costs have been steadily rising. These costs have been compounded by COVID’s multiple impacts but even if COVID had not happened, conference fees would have been increased. With the added costs of the technology to deliver virtual programs, and the rising costs in general, the Board found it necessary to reset the fees.
