There is no charge for conference registration, but registration is required
in advance and subject to approval.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.  (Note: We are using the Zoom Webinar format for the conference, so the Invitation and emails to people who register will sometimes refer to it as a “webinar”.)

Although AutCom is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization, all conferences have costs. To help defray this cost and to support our advocacy for social justice for all, attendees and others are welcome to make an online donation on this website or by mail to Autism National Committee, PO Box 115, Oberlin, OH  44074.
