2018 Conference Registration

Our conference is for anyone. If you enjoy rock art you should really come! Great speakers, fun people, wonderful field trips, dinner, auctions, early morning meetings, late night soirees. We have it all!

Each individual coming to the conference should complete a separate registration. There is the ability to add a guest to your registration if a spouse does not have an email address.

If you have a family member who is not attending the conference but would like to join you at the Sunday banquet you can add an additional meal during your registration.

Payment can be made by credit card or check. If you wish to pay by check select the "Invoice Me" option at the end of the registration process.

You can cancel your registration yourself. Log into the website (top right of the page) and then you will see an "Already registered" link below the "Register" button.  Click on this link and you will have a cancel option.

Pre-registration closes on May 18th. After that you will need to register at the conference. There will be additional fees for on-site registration.

Refund policy: Requests to refund conference fees will be considered if received by ARARA by May 11, 2017. A $15 processing fee will be retained. Refund requests will be processed after the meeting.
