2018 Joint Annual Conference Registration Now Open

Online registration and housing for 2018 Joint Annual Conference opened on Monday, June 11. Detailed instructions for the registration process are available here. Conference registrants will need to login to their IASB account to complete the registration process.

Districts and individuals can also register for IASB Pre-Conference Workshops (additional fees apply) held Friday, November 16 at the Sheraton Grand Chicago and the School Safety and Security Seminar (additional fees apply) at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. Registration information is also available for the Administrative Professionals’ Program (no additional fee) taking place November 16-17.

2018 Conference registration and housing fees

      Registration fee: $485 per person (onsite $510)

      Housing deposit: $200 per room requested (non-refundable)

NOTE: Exhibitors should NOT create an IASB account to register for Conference. Separate registration information is available specifically for exhibitor housing/registration.

IASB has a limited block of rooms available specifically for Conference attendees. To obtain a room within one of the Conference housing blocks, a paid Conference registration and a housing deposit, per room requested, is required. Payment options include:

  • Check – mailed to IASB, Attn: JAC Registrar, 2921 Baker Drive, Springfield, IL 62703. Note: Housing will not be processed until payment is received.
  • ACH Payment – a secure payment transfer system in which your institution grants IASB authorization to debit directly from a checking account for the purpose of payment. There is no processing fee for ACH payments.
  • Credit Cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express) – a 3 percent non-refundable processing fee will be charged for each credit card transaction. Only one credit card can be used per transaction. Verify your credit limit prior to registering, as you will not be able to split the registration payment over multiple credit cards.

NOTE: For all registration cancelations, housing will be automatically cancelled.
