2018 ATP Conference – FAQ 2017-09-28T00:53:40+00:00

Registration Policies

Conference Events

  • Participants are encouraged to register early to secure tickets to conference events that have limited seating, such as Pre- or Post-Conference Institutes, campus tours, and special events. Those registering for the conference need to meet the communicated conference deadlines for events to ensure participation.
  • Tours offered during the ATP conference are intended to be educational and to allow conference attendees to experience activities in the host city for each conference. Because some of these tours have limited capacity, the policy for registering for tours will be that only conference attendees will be able to register for tours until the regular registration deadline of January 18, 2018.


  • Payments may be made by personal or institutional check or by credit card (PayPal, Square, MasterCard or Visa) to the ATP Treasurer (treasurer@myatp.org). There are payment options online, by phone, or by mail.
  • A $35 fee will be charged for any check returned due to insufficient funds.

Registration Rates

  • Only those who register and make payment within the Early Registration period will receive the early discounted rates.
  • Regular registration rates are effective December 15, 2017- January 18, 2018.
  • Registrations postmarked on or after January 19, 2017 will be adjusted to the appropriate rate, and the participant must pay the remaining balance (either by personal or institutional check or credit card) at the on-site registration desk before receiving any registration materials.

Conference Registration Refund Requests

  • Requests for refunds of conference registration must be made in writing and postmarked on or before February 16, 2018 to be considered.
  • Requests for refunds of conference registration postmarked after February 17, 2018 will not be honored unless they are requested as a result of serious illness, death in the family, or other unforeseeable emergency.
  • Requests made after the start of the annual conference will not be considered.
  • Conference registration fee refund requests should be directed to the(treasurer@myatp.org) and will be reviewed and processed on an individual basis following the conference, but not later than May 30, 2018.
  • Payments by institutions will be refunded to the institutions, and payments made by individuals will be returned to the individual.
  • All refunds will be less a $50 processing fee.
  • Payments for Pre-Conference Institutes, tours, campus visits, or functions with a meal cannot be refunded at any time because ATP commits to pay for these activities in advance based on the number of attendees registered.
