All career science communicators who are NASW members will receive a complimentary press badge from the AAAS Office of Public Programs. Current NASW membership and valid photo identification are required. Advance registration using the simple online form is strongly recommended. But, NASW members also may register on-site by presenting their current membership card and valid photo identification.

ALL OTHER NEWSROOM REGISTRANTS

Working reporters (staff or freelance), public information officers, journalism professors and students will receive complimentary registration to the 2009 AAAS Annual Meeting through the AAAS Office of Public Programs.
