2019 Annual Convention


Online Registration

Online convention registration will be available January 25, 2019. To make the registration process more efficient, delegates are encouraged to pre-register. Pre-registration will assist the League staff in making arrangements for attendance at this year’s convention. The deadline for pre-registration is 2:00 p.m. on April 12, 2019. After 2:00 p.m. on April 12, delegates must register at the Convention Registration Desk.

In order to ensure that there are no duplicate registrations, each registrant must use a separate email address. While we can accept registrations by fax, for security reasons we cannot accept registrations sent by email. Therefore, to expedite the registration process, we encourage each registrant to use their own email address, or obtain one, and register on-line. You can go to Gmail.com or Yahoo.com to create a free email account if you do not already have an email address.

Pre-Registration has closed. Please register onsite at the Convention.

Payment in full must be received by the deadlines above, or the registrations will be subject to a fee increase.

The full convention fee covers all events for each delegate. To view events, go to www.alalm.org.

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 as well as other guests, the full registration fee must be paid.

To view a list of events that registered spouses/guests/children are eligible to attend, please visit www.alalm.org. There is no extra charge for children under 6; however, children must be pre-registered.

*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 accompany a full convention registrant to events specifically listed in the official convention program as open to a Spouse/Guest. Eligibility of guests is subject to verification.

**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 Official Program.
