AAP Members Save
There is no advance selection for specific education sessions (excluding courses and workshops, for which an additional fee is required). Every attendee has the same opportunity to attend sessions on a first-come, first-served basis. Once that session reaches capacity, attendees may choose another session during the time frame.
One-Day Registration Fee
The one-day registration fee entitles you to attend that day’s activities only. A separate registration fee will be charged for courses and workshops.
The family registration fee is $10 per person and allows admission into our special evening events (Welcome Reception, Kids’ Camp, New Orleans Experience! at Mardi Gras World, President’s Reception, the Exhibit, and Plenary Sessions). Continuing medical education credits, entrance to scientific sessions, and tickets to other education sessions are not available to persons registered in this category.
Child Care Services
Additional child care services are available for a nominal fee of $25 per day and will be located at one of the hotels in the AAP Housing Block. You may prefer to book your hotel room at this property for convenience. Advance registration is required. To register, contact KiddieCorp at 800/942-9947 or visit https://www.kiddiecorp.com/aapkids.htm. KiddieCorp has been the official child care provider for AAP since 1991. KiddieCorp’s goal is to provide your children from the ages of 6 weeks to 12 years of age with a program that they want to attend, while providing you with that critical “peace of mind” feeling while you attend the conference.
