Spouse registrations should not be separated from the member or non-member registrations.  When registering a member, under guest registration please click on the button for "Add Spouse/Partner" to add the spouse/partner's information. 

DO NOT USE the guest registration for trustees.  Any guest that is not classified as a "spouse/partner" should be registered in accordance with the member or non-member base registration rate. 

Group Registration

Group registration can be performed for members or non-members.  Once you complete registration for one person on your team, and proceed to the summary page, please click on the link at the top or bottom of the page for "Add Additional Person."  You will then receive the prompts to register the next person.  Do note, if you are registering a group, the payment will be requested for the group. Payments cannot be split for a group registration. 


Payment can be made via credit card or check.  AACC does not accept Purchase Orders.  We accept Visa, Master Card, and American Express. Your credit card will be charged immediately upon submitting payment.  If you opt to pay by check, you will not receive final registration confirmation until AACC receives your check and posts it to your account. Once your account reflects a zero balance, you will receive a confirmation email including a hyperlink to the secure Hyatt Regency Chicago website to make your lodging arrangements. 

Checks should be made payable to the American Association of Community Colleges and be mailed to: P.O. Box 75263, Baltimore, MD 21275.

A refund of the conference fee (full registration, spouse/partner, or day-rate), minus a $250 administrative fee, will be given for cancellations received by that date. Cancellations are also applicable to pre-convention sessions.  The refund will be $250, with exception of the case when the pre-convention session is less than the cancellation fee. 

NO REFUNDS will be granted for requests postmarked after February 29, 2016.

  • We understand that special circumstances may arise after our deadline date, but refunds will not be issued.  We would be pleased to credit your registration toward the next year’s convention.
