All sessions are final as scheduled. If, for some reason, a presentation must be withdrawn at the last moment due to a schedule conflict or other unforeseen circumstances, send immediate written notification to email@example.com so the change or cancellation may be noted in the program addendum [PDF].
The Convention program is now available through the Program Planner. It contains the comprehensive and detailed schedule of all education sessions offered during the 2013 ASHA Convention—both oral seminars and poster presentations. The Program Planner serves as both the advance Convention program and a tool to create your own personal schedule of sessions. A mobile app version of the Program Planner is available on the ASHA website.

Pre-Convention educational events give attendees an opportunity to earn additional CEUs through the Illinois State Speech-Language-Hearing Association-sponsored workshops or the Specialty Board Symposium. Tickets (additional fee) for the Pre-Convention sessions may be purchased when registering for the Convention.
You may purchase tickets to attend the pre-Convention sessions even if you do not plan to attend the Convention. In order to purchase tickets, however, you’ll still need to complete the Convention registration process. When you log into the registration system select the “Wednesday Only” registration option for $0, which will allow you to add tickets for the sessions being held on Wednesday. You will pay only for those sessions you select, and will not be registered for the ASHA Convention, which begins on Thursday.
