There are conference fee discounts for:

  • Presenters (must register by 15 March 2018)
  • Early discount for anyone who register by 1 May 2018
  • Volunteers


The conference discount for members, in the range of 10% to 15% pays for most of your membership fees.  For example: with an individual general membership $100 membership fee can save you up to $80 on the conference depending on registration category; and for a student/limited-income membership of $65 you could save $40 on the conference. To Join or Renew your membership CLICK HERE then return to this form when finished.


You now have the ability on your registration form to order up to 2 meals or event tickets for companions who are not attending the conference.  Companions who are attending the conference should fill out a separate conference registration form however.


  • The conference hotel – Doubletree Resort Paradise Valley – is the best lodging choice for rooms (at the IASD discount of $89 per night) for ease in getting to the conference events on time. For your convenience IASD has committed to a block of 160 discounted rooms for that special rate, so we encourage you to please stay there if you can – your staying at the hotel helps IASD to meet our commitment and avoid our becoming responsible for unsold or cancelled rooms.
  • Discounted room rates are $89 per night for a Single or Double room pre-tax (there are no other service fees). The deadline for discounted reservations is 1 June 2018.
  • We also have secured the discounted rates for 3 days before and after the conference for those who want to travel around the area or enjoy the resort.

Volunteer Fee

This heavily discounted fee is in lieu of the above conference fees for pre-approved volunteers that work on site.  An initial $180 non-refundable fee will be required, $100 of which will be reimbursed at the end of the conference once all assigned duties have been completed. Because it is non-refundable please make sure you are fairly certain of your ability to attend (barring extreme circumstances) before you apply.  All volunteers who have received approval MUST register and pay this fee by the deadline on their approval letter, and will be removed from the roster if not registered by that date. Do Not check off the volunteer fee unless you have received an approval letter. Those on the waiting list who pay the Early or Regular registration fee will be reimbursed the difference if they are later accepted as a volunteer. Volunteers who wish meals and lodging at the Hotel, must pre-reserve and pay for meals on the conference reservation form and reserve lodging directly with Hilton Paradise Valley Resort.

Volunteer Fee ($80; you pay $180 less $100 refundable on-site once duties are completed)

The four star Doubletree kitchen has provided us with some representative menus that we hope will satisfy all, with meat and vegetarian selections as well as the ability to pre-order for special vegan and gluten free diets (please specify on the registration form).

Lunches can be purchased separately by day or there is a slightly lower cost luncheon meal package which includes lunch for the 4 main days of the conference (Sunday – Wednesday). Evening buffet meal tickets are also available per night from Saturday through Wednesday). After selecting your meal orders please specify any dietary need by selecting the Dietary Options item and making your selection before clicking “proceed”.
