Cost for Registration 

Please be reminded that SWS Summer Meetings are held in tandem with the ASA Annual Meeting. As per a long-standing agreement between SWS and ASA, SWS Summer Meeting attendees must be registered for the ASA 2022 Annual Meeting

We recognize that meeting costs add up, therefore, 50 complimentary ASA Annual Meeting Registrations will be granted to SWS Summer Meeting participants. [Note: The deadline to request this complimentary ASA Annual Meeting Registration (June 17, 2022) has now passed.] All SWS Summer Meeting participants are invited to apply for these complimentary ASA Meeting Registrations, but we will prioritize student members who do not have institutional support to participate, such as those who submitted papers to ASA, but were rejected and are unable to count on potential institutional funding. Moreover, SWS will subsidize the cost of Summer 2022 Meeting Registration by 30%, 20% or 10% by those who request funds, and will offer the opportunity for members to add 30%, 20% or 10% to their registration fees if they can pay more.

The cost of registering for the SWS Summer Meeting is $75 for higher income members, and $40 for students and retired members as well as members with an annual income lower than $40,000. Registration includes the Awards Banquet to be held on Sunday evening at the LA Convention Center. SWS members will also be able to watch the portions of the SWS Summer Meeting program that will be livestreamed for a suggested donation of $10.

Regarding Covid-19 protocols, all SWS attendees must comply with ASA Health Regulations.
