113th Annual Conference - Portland, Oregon
Friday, November 6 - Sunday, November 8, 2015


Conference Check-in

Members may obtain a name badge and printed copy of the conference program at the registration desk located in the lobby of the Hilton Portland & Executive Tower.  Registration times are available on the conference schedule.

Registration and Fees

Conference attendees may pay their PAMLA dues and conference registration fees via our mail-in registration form or our online form.  You may also use this system to pay for the Friday Presidential Address Luncheon, Saturday Plenary Address Luncheon, or to make a donation to our PAMLA Scholarship fund:

PAMLA membership is required for all conference presiding officers, chairs, and presenters.  Membership is due by July 1, 2015, and the conference fee is due by October 1, 2015. We offer the convenient option of paying both fees at the same time--doing so will save PAMLA money, and would be much appreciated.
