What is Partner Day? Can I attend for free?

Scheduled for Monday, February 15, 2021, the Partner Day is designed as a showcase for industry leaders, an opportunity for networking with sponsors, exhibitors, and attendees, and an introduction to the AIEA conference.  Partner Day registration includes access to the Newcomer Orientation, Virtual networking, AIEA resource sessions, spotlight sessions and features provided by industry partners, and access to the Virtual Partner Resource Center. You can also join in a short AIEA Business Meeting and meet the 2021 Board Members.

Members can sign up for Partner Day for free, while non-members will be charged a $10 processing fee. To register for Partner Day alone, select the Partner Day Only registration on the second page of the Cvent registration page.

I am a presenter. Do I have to register for the full conference?

Conference presenters are required to register for the full conference, with the exception of those whose sessions are scheduled only for Partner Day. One presenter per conference session may choose to submit a recording of their segment in lieu of appearing live during the conference.

Are scholarships or other financial support available for conference participation? 

While registration is required for the last two days of the full conference, Partner Day is available for free to members and a small processing fee to non-members. Other financial support options are not available at this time.

Can I share a registration?

No. Each conference registration is unique to the individual who purchases it, and may only be used by that registrant.

Are sessions recorded?

Conference sessions will be recorded, and will be accessible to all Full Conference registrants On Demand for 30 days following the completion of the conference.

What are the pre-conference events?

When will I have access to the conference website?

Conference registrants will be emailed the first week of February with a unique log-in code and instructions for accessing the Virtual Attendee Hub.

Will I be on camera during the conference? What is the dress code?

We encourage participants to be on-camera, particularly during roundtable sessions and networking time.

Are there special rates for retired members? One-day registration options?

While longtime AIEA members who are no longer earning a salary in the field may be approved for retiree membership rates, there is not a retiree registration rate for AIEA 2021. Registrants can sign up for the Partner Day alone or for the full conference (Partner Day included.)
