Volunteer Fee

This heavily discounted fee is in lieu of the above conference fees for pre-approved volunteers that work on site. An initial $200 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
($100; you pay $200 less $100 refundable on-site once duties are completed)

Sample Menu’s

For a list of the meal menu’s planned for each day, click here to go to a sampling of the Buffet Lunch and Dinner Menus. Then return to this Registration form to complete your registration.

Luncheon and Dinner Buffet Tickets

All ticket prices are all inclusive (include tax, tip, ice tea and water and dessert). Lunches are listed separately plus there is a 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). Meal tickets are highly recommended because: there are no restaurants outside the hotel within walking distance; the buffet meals conserve time during the meal breaks (so you don’t miss the next speaker); the hotel restaurant has very limited capacity; and the buffet setting allow you to join other attendees. Buffets include meat, vegetarian and gluten free entrées. Vegan selections will be specially served as plated meals. Please specify your dietary needs in the Dietary Selections item before you click the PROCEED button so that the proper quantities can be provided. Note that we are unable to accommodate other dietary needs or allergies within the buffet but the Hotel restaurant may be able to provide those. Note that the DEADLINE for pre-ordering meals and special meal orders is 5 June 2020

4 Day Lunch Buffet Package (Sunday through Wednesday) per person ($120)
Lunch Buffet single day ($32) – Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Dinner Buffet single day ($35) – Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday; Wednesday


CE Credits are provided by IASD. IASD is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. IASD maintains responsibility for this program and its content.

Note that our approval for 2020 is renewed in the spring (April 2020 anticipated) so our ability to offer CE Credits is pending that approval (a refund will apply if there is a problem). This option requires that the attendee carry a CE booklet to each CE marked session sign in, fill out an evaluation and have their booklet signed at each session and signed out at the end of the conference; then fill out an online evaluation form during or within 10 days after the conference.

Processing and Booklet Fee for CE Credits if desired ($30)


  • A Juried Dream Art Exhibition is planned that invites local artists, as well as artists who attend the conference from around the world, to participate. Artists are encouraged to submit original artwork about or inspired by their nighttime dreams.
  • The Call to Artists once posted will have a 15 February 2020 deadline for submissions. Check the call/submissions menu link above for details.
  • All submissions will require a non-refundable hanging fee of $35
  • For those registering for the conference (full conference or only a day or so) the hanging fee is waived.
  • All approved Exhibiting Artists wishing to register for the conference should do so by 15 April in order to take advantage of the early bird discount.


The registration form includes a comment box for you to note any special needs. Although IASD will do its best to meet such requests, it is not always practical or possible to do so and thus IASD cannot guarantee that a specific request can be met. Note that we may be unable to accommodate dietary allergies within the buffet meal orders which only accommodate vegan and gluten free special diets – we refer you to the hotel restaurant for those needs. Note that we make efforts to provide special seating Lodging for those who have limited sight or hearing or need wheelchair access, so let us know if you have those needs so that we can plan properly. If you have a specific question regarding facility access you may contact the hotel (see the Travel and Accommodations page)


Payments can be made using Visa, Master Card and American Express

Due to date dependent contractual and scheduling obligations, NO REFUNDS ARE OFFERED AFTER 1 March 2020 for Presenters; 15 March 2020 for Volunteers (confirmed before that date); nor after 1 June 2020 for ANY registrant.
