Registration Process

You may attend the RDC of your choice. However, in order to foster the appropriate level of participation in the discussion of House of Delegates business, we would like to ensure that no particular site has more than 25 delegates. Before making your hotel and flight reservations, please select which RDC you will attend by accessing this link and completing the online registration form. Only locations that are still open will be available for your selection. Sites that are full will not be displayed. After submitting the form you should receive an email confirming that your registration was successful. In order to ensure that you are able to obtain your preferred RDC site, it is advisable that you register as soon as possible.

Suggestions for Open-Discussion Topics at RDCs

Suggestions for topics that should be considered for discussion at your RDC (i.e., practice-related issues or state-specific issues) can be submitted via the registration link above.

Reimbursement

ASHP will provide $400 for each certified delegate who attends the RDC. These funds will be sent directly to the affiliated state society for disbursement. Reimbursement of delegates other than state delegates is handled directly between ASHP and the delegate.

Attendees

Delegates and alternate delegate to the ASHP House of Delegates (including ASHP Past Presidents, section and forum chairs, and fraternal delegates from the federal services) are the primary attendees at the RDCs. State affiliate presidents and executives are also encouraged to attend.

State and alternate delegate attendance should be coordinated by the president of the state affiliate. If you have not already discussed RDC attendance from your state, you should do so now. If a state delegate is not able to attend the RDC, an alternate delegate should be considered to ensure coverage and receipt of the information from the conference.

The House of Delegates materials will be posted on the ASHP website by mid-April. It is imperative that all attendees review delegate materials in advance of the RDC and bring all relevant materials to the RDC.

Travel

The conference format requires an overnight stay by participants, and ASHP has made arrangements with each hotel for a special room rate for RDC participants. Hotel information, telephone numbers, Web sites, and contact references appear with the RDC listings below. Once you have completed the on-line registration, please call the hotel directly to make your room reservation as early as possible as the RDC rate is not guaranteed after the cutoff date listed. Be certain to indicate you are attending the “ASHP Regional Delegate Conference” to obtain the special rate.
