The AAS does not provide childcare services at the annual conference.  However, in support of panel participants in need of professional childcare services while on-site at the annual conference, the AAS board of directors has approved a reimbursement up to $100 per family for childcare expenses incurred onsite

Reimbursements are available only for individuals participating on the formal program and requests must be supported with original receipts.   The AAS will only accept receipts from professional and licensed childcare providers having rendered services for children 12 years and under.  Childcare reimbursement funds are limited and are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis until available funding is depleted.

Please contact Alicia Williams at for more information regarding reimbursement.
