The full convention fee covers the following events for each delegate: Saturday Night Welcome Reception, Municipal Marketplace Exhibitors Extravaganza and Reception, Municipal Marketplace Breakfast and Boxed Luncheon on Monday, Monday evening reception, President’s Banquet and Entertainment. The astronomical cost of putting on a convention makes it impossible to allow free admittance of guests of delegates at any function. Delegates are urged to pre-register guests. For children ages 6 and over and guests, the full registration fee must be paid.

The registration fee for spouses/guests and children over 6 includes Saturday Night Welcome Reception, Municipal Marketplace Exhibitors Extravaganza and Reception, Municipal Marketplace Breakfast, Monday evening reception, President’s Banquet and Entertainment. There is no extra charge for children under 6; however, children must be pre-registered. Children under the age of 6, if registered, may attend the following events: Saturday Night Welcome Reception, Municipal Marketplace Exhibitors Extravaganza and Reception, Monday evening reception, President’s Banquet and Entertainment.

*Spouse/guest registration cannot be paid by the municipality; therefore, registration must be paid by the official at the time of registration. The spouse/guest registration fee is restricted to persons who are not municipal or public officials, are not affiliated with any exhibitor, and would have no professional reason to attend the convention. Spouse/Guest registration is available ONLY for a person who accompanies a full convention registrant, and only to those who do not have any other reason to attend the ALM Convention. Spouse/Guest registration does not include session attendance. The spouse/guest registration permits an individual to attend only the Spouse/Guest events and to accompany a full convention registrant to receptions, Monday evening reception, President’s Banquet and Entertainment, and the Municipal Marketplace and events specifically listed in the official convention program as open to a Spouse/Guest. Eligibility of guests may be subject to verification. Attendance at any other Convention event requires registration as a full-convention attendee.

**To register additional guest(s), there is an additional non-refundable fee of $150 per guest. Spouses/Guests are not eligible to attend the convention training sessions or obtain credit hours in the Certified Municipal Officials Program.

CONVENTION REFUND / CANCELLATION POLICY:

In order to receive a partial refund of your registration fee, your cancellation request must be received in writing by April 27, 2018. A $60 administrative fee will be charged for all cancellations regardless of the reason for cancellation, including medical emergencies. No refunds will be given after this date. Registration fees for spouses/ guest are nonrefundable. ALM cannot make exceptions to this policy.
