Registration & Fees

Online Registration

Online Registration is provided via APA's events registration portal. 

Online Registration is a multi-step process which requires your login credentials for If you are not a member and do not have a username and password, you may create a non-member account by clicking "My APA". Once logged in, you will proceed through several screens:

  1. First select your role: APA Member, Planning Commissioner, Friday Only, or Student.
  2. Second, confirm your contact information.
  3. Third, select which additional events such as Mobile Workshops or the Bayou Bash you may wish to attend. Extra tickets are available for purchase for spouses. Be sure to cycle through the three tabs at the top of this screen representing the three conference days: Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
  4. Lastly you review your choices in the shopping cart and make your purchase with your credit card.


A printer-friendly PDF version of the conference program is being finalized. Please be aware that processing paper registrations creates additional work for our volunteers. We urge you to take advantage of online registration where possible.
