What do I get with my registration?
There is an ARA Member/Non-member price difference so become an ARA Member and reap the rewards! There is also a discount for each registrant from the same company after the first, so the more people you register from your company, the greater the discount. See the enclosed registration form for price discounts and deadlines.
