IA Registration Policy

The International Affairs Conference welcomes applicants of all races, religions, ethnic groups, and sexual orientation. The Conference has 270 spaces for 2017. Submit your full week application by March 10th to be given priority if conference capacity is exceeded by April 15th.

Conference Overnight Guests

A Conference Overnight Guest is any attendee wishing to register for less than the full week. In an effort to ensure that all who wish to attend for the full week are given preference, applications for Overnight Guests will be accepted only after May 15. Priority will be given to Overnight Guests of spouses, partners and children of full week attendees sharing the same room.

Conference Overnight Guests are responsible for securing their own travel and boat arrangements and communicating this information to the Registrar. The Registrar cannot make these arrangements for you.

Procedures if the IA Conference is Full by April 15

In some years the IA conference receives more applications than can be accommodated. In this case, applications received by March 10 will be considered as early applicants and be given priority. Find out more about this process….
