Speaker Rates

NEMA appreciates its colleagues who participate as panelists and speakers. If you plan to attend the conference beyond the session in which you're participating, we offer a significant discount on registration. Only attending your session? We ask that you still register for the conference. Just select the "attending my session only" option and the registration is free.
Full Registration: $200-240
One-day Registration: $130-$145

Group Rate

NEMA member museums can send 10 or more employees and save 25% off the member rate! Contact the NEMA office at 781-641-0013 or conference@nemanet.org to register. Please note that the discount only applies to the member rate.

Registration Policies

If your institution is sending more than one attendee to the conference and paying with one check, please submit all of your registration forms together along with the payment. Registrations may not be split among multiple people.

If you would like to bring a guest to a lunch or evening event, please use our "Guest" form online or call the NEMA office for details.

You may transfer your registration to another person at any time prior to conference. Please call the NEMA office with the name of your replacement. Once the conference begins, you cannot transfer or share your registration.

One-day registrations may not be split between days. If you want to attend an evening event prior to your one-day registration, you must register for the full conference instead.

Sorry, we are unable to accept purchase orders or government training vouchers.

Cancellation Policy

If you need to cancel your registration and special event tickets, we will provide a refund (less a 25% processing charge). We must receive your refund request in writing (mail or email) no later than October 1, 2017. After that date there are no refunds. Refunds will be mailed after the conference.
