New Policy: Retired Active Member Support

As of the 2016 ABS conference, retired but active members of the society will be entitled to pay reduced registration fees to attend the annual ABS meeting. Retired but active members who require reduced registration fees can register directly under the retired member category at the registration site for the upcoming ABS 2016 meeting. Retired members will pay rates equivalent to Developing Nations ABS Member Rates.

For more information, please visit the ABS 2016 Conference website here.

Please note, if retired members are able to afford to pay the full rates, ABS would greatly appreciate it.
