Childcare & Children at the Annual Meeting

Childcare is available at the Annual Meeting. Please see information on booking childcare on our accessibility page.


ASHG 2024 offers attendees the opportunity to apply for continuing education credits through the following:

  • CME Credits (AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™) – additional $85 fee.
  • NSGC CEU Credits for Genetic Counselors – additional $85 fee.
  • P.A.C.E.® Contact Hours for California-Licensed Clinical and Molecular Laboratory Directors – no fee.

Not all sessions are eligible for CME or CEU credits due to the strict guidelines ASHG must adhere to set by our accrediting bodies. We strive to offer as many credits as possible. View our continuing education webpage (coming soon) to see which sessions are eligible for CME/CEU credits, read more about the guidelines, and apply for credits.

Instructions to claim credits will be available in October and will be sent to all registrants who paid for credits during the registration process.

If you wish to apply for credits after you have registered, simply visit our registration resource center (available in June) where you will be able to edit your registration and add on these items.

Cost Savings

ASHG strives to make its Annual Meetings as affordable as possible, so various registration rates are offered to ease the financial burden. We recommend registering before the early deadline on August 21 at 5pm ET to take advantage of the lowest rates. Becoming a member of ASHG will save you even more! The regular member registration rate saves you up to $400 – that’s more than the cost of membership itself!

Other ways to reduce costs for attendance include:

  • Booking your flight and making your hotel reservations early to take advantage of lower rates.
  • Consider reaching out to colleagues attending so you can consider sharing a room.
  • Apply for these merit-based awards by submitting an abstract:

Please see our blog post (coming soon) for additional ways to save.

Dress Code

Attire is business casual. Wear comfortable shoes and dress in layers since the Convention Center may vary in temperature.

Election / Voting During ASHG 2024

ASHG meeting dates are decided years in advance based on availability of locations and unfortunately cannot be changed. ASHG and its Program Committee are aware of the overlap with the 2024 Presidential Election and recommend requesting an absentee ballot or early voting.

Guest & One-Day Registration

Please see the registration page for information.

Marketing Emails (Third Party)

ASHG does not sell or share member/attendee lists, so our exhibitors do not have access to your information from ASHG meeting registrations. Some exhibitors may have your information from previous years if you attended and chose to share your information with them or they may have collected your information from your employer website if your contact info is listed. You may unsubscribe at any time from unwanted emails.
