How do I register to attend?

All registration must be done through the ARMA LIVE! 2018 Conference website. Need assistance with registering? Please call 888-232-2226.

Where can I find my schedule and/or education session descriptions and handouts?

The EDUCATION & EVENTS SEARCH features education session details, handouts, and information on all events at the annual conference. You can also create your own schedule and download handouts using the conference app (available early October 2018). It is highly recommended you download session handouts because there will be limited printed copies in the session rooms and these will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis.

Can I get credit for attending the conference and pre-conference certificate training courses?

ARMA International will request ICRM maintenance credits for the conference and Designation Academy once the session schedule is set. Please check back this summer for specific approved credit hours.

The ARMA conference site will also have Information Governance Professional (IGP) maintenance credits information this summer.

What is the refund policy?

Written cancellations received by August 28, 2018 will be subject to a penalty of 20% of all registration fees. Written cancellations received after August 28, 2018 and before September 29, 2018 will be subject to a penalty of 50% of all registration fees. There will be no refund to registrants who do not cancel before September 29, 2018 and are considered “no shows” at conference. Substitutions are encouraged.

What is the dress code?

The dress code for conference is business casual. Consider dressing in layers because the meeting rooms can be chilly - but the sun will be bright and warm in Anaheim.

What is the weather going to be like?

Average temperatures in October are 82° in the daytime and 58° at night Fahrenheit.

Name badges

Name badges will be available for pickup upon checking in at the registration desk.
