Conference Registration Reimbursement – Posted March 25, 2020

We hope this finds everyone safe and healthy.

We thank you all for supporting the AAIS AATI 2020 Joint Conference. As you can imagine, much work has gone into organizing this event and we are disappointed about its cancellation; however, the current public health situation left no other option.

We are writing to let you know that all registrants are eligible for reimbursement of the conference fee. We describe here the situation and the process.

We appreciate your continued patience as we work as fast as we can on refunding you your conference fee. At this time, only final banquet reservations have been reimbursed.  

Reimbursements are affected by a Paypal policy that will necessarily make the process slower than we would like.

Paypal, which we used to collect fees, imposes a monthly limit on the number of reimbursements that can be made.  This means unwinding could take some time. We have made an appeal to Paypal for an exception in our case and are currently awaiting their response.

We respectfully ask that registrants not file cases with PayPal for refunds. Not only will this incur additional PayPal fees that the organizations are responsible for, but it will require additional steps before the refund is issued, which will slow down the entire process even further. Please know that every effort is being made to restore your fees to you. Neither organization has paid staff, and all efforts are being made by colleagues in a climate of increased pedagogical and administrative demands. We thank you for your understanding.

If you do not need a refund, please consider donating your registration fee (either in part or entirely) to help us offset the expenses that will be incurred by both associations as a result of the cancellation of the 2020 conference.  As you know, the AAIS and AATI are both 401c3 (not for profit) organizations. Your tax-deductible donation will help us meet the outstanding financial obligations for the 2020 conference. Further, anything you contribute supports, for example, travel awards to the associations’ less senior members. Whatever revenues donated will be divided equally between the two organizations and any donation is welcome and appreciated.

To request your refund of registration fees, kindly fill out the Google form  Refunds will be made in the order in which the request was received.

If you have any questions, please contact the AATI Secretary/Treasurer, Dr. Enza Antenos, at

The executive committees of the AAIS and AATI have deferred discussion of another joint conference to some time later this calendar year, when demands of the new online teaching parameters and current distractions have lessened. Like you, we are disappointed that the 2020 conference has been cancelled and we hope to capitalize on the considerable labor already invested in another joint venture in future. We will report back to both organizations after such a time as we have had to discuss the possibilities.

Thanks again for your support and for your continued patience as we unwind the 2020 conference.

Conference Registration

Conference registration for the AAIS AATI 2020 Conference at the University of Arizona is currently open. You must be a member in good standing with either AAIS or AATI. The easiest way to register for the conference is through PayPal below. It is however possible to register via snail mail, paying with a check. All checks must be paid to the order of “AATI” and in the memo we ask that you note “Univ of Arizona Registration”.
