Special Rates

Registration Plus Membership

Our conference + membership rate allows you to bundle a one-year membership with your conference registration for the same price as nonmember registration.

You can become a PRIM&R member or renew your membership when you register for the AER Conference!

Put membership in your cart first when you register and you’ll receive the member rate for registration. Plus, PRIM&R membership will help you...

  • Stay informed. Get the most up-to-date news from the field, and stay informed without wading through dozens of sources or publications.
  • Connect with colleagues. Members have access to a network of those who work in and are knowledgeable about the research ethics field and its challenges.
  • Advance your career. Get the tools and information you need to document your expertise, build your résumé, and navigate your career path.
  • Stretch your resources. Save money by taking advantage of discounts on educational programs, relevant journals and publications, certification exam fees, and continuing education credits.

Student/Young Professional Rate

Student rate:

If you are a PRIM&R member (or will become one at the time of registration) and you are a student (defined as those enrolled in a degree-seeking program of study at the time of the conference), you are eligible to receive a discounted registration rate.

To qualify for the student rate, please send your contact information (including email address) and proof of enrollment (a copy of your valid student ID, a letter, on letterhead, from your registrar, etc.) to PRIM&R via fax, mail, or email before registering online.

Young Professional rate:

If you are a PRIM&R member (or will become one at the time of registration) and you will be under 30 two weeks before the conference begins, you are eligible to receive a discounted registration rate.

To qualify for the young professional rate, please send your contact information (including email address) along with a scanned copy of your driver's license, passport, or government-issued photo ID, to PRIM&R via fax, mail, or email before registering online.

Once we have verified your eligibility for either the student or the young professional rate, PRIM&R will contact you with instructions on how to complete your registration online. Please note we cannot provide you with these special rates if proper identification is not provided. A one-year individual PRIM&R membership is not included in the discounted student/young professional registration package. Membership is required for eligibility and may be purchased in conjunction with your registration.
