On Aging 2022 is an annual meeting of the ASA membership. As such, no one will be admitted to On Aging 2022 without a current ASA membership. Attendees are responsible for ensuring that their membership is kept up to date through April 11, 2022, to attend On Aging 2022. 

You may renew your membership at the time of your On Aging 2022 registration purchase and it will be added to your current membership, ensuring that your membership doesn’t lapse. Alternatively, you may renew your membership when it comes up for renewal or you may choose to pay for your renewal on-site at On Aging 2022.  

ASA can only accept in-person payments by credit card or check. Cash payments will not be accepted.

All attendees and exhibitors will need to show proof of vaccination to attend On Aging 2022. ASA’s first priority in all meeting and event decisions is the safety and welfare of our attendees, exhibitors, partners and team members. To enable in-person events to take place with lower risk to participants, ASA is requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination for admittance to On Aging 2022.

This policy is based on science, the expertise of ASA’s Board of Directors and membership, guidance and recommendations issued by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other public health authorities. The COVID-19 vaccines approved by the FDA for emergency use authorization and the vaccines that the FDA has fully approved have been determined to be critical in reducing the community prevalence of COVID-19.

In addition to this requirement, we will also follow all requirements of the city of New Orleans and our host hotel the Hyatt Regency New Orleans. These will be kept updated here.

ASA will also require registrants to submit an attestation of vaccination form upon registering for this event.

Thank you for helping ASA do all that we can to keep On Aging 2022 safe for everyone.  

At the time of registration, you will be required to attest to the fact that you have received a full series or dosage of the COVID-19 vaccination. When you check-in at On Aging 2022, you will be required to show proof of vaccination to be admitted. Note that no one will be admitted without proof of vaccination.  

Experts recommend taking a digital photograph of both sides of your personal vaccination record card. That photo can be stored in the photos area of your smartphone and be accessible wherever you need it. Below are some “app-based” alternatives to show proof of vaccination.

  1. If you are a user of the Clear platform for TSA Pre-Check, Clear now offers the option of creating a digital vaccine card. It’s secure, easy and takes just minutes. Learn more.
  2. VaccineCheck makes it easy for individuals to present their health status digitally, while maintaining privacy and security. Powered by Pinpoint and backed by more than 30 years of enterprise compliance technology and safety experience, VaccineCheck generates an authenticated digital version of a CDC vaccine card after verifying COVID-19 vaccine history. Learn more.
  3. Some states offer a vaccine passport app. We will accept these apps as proof as well.


We encourage students or retired professionals who are ASA members to apply to volunteer at On Aging 2022. As a thank you for volunteering for one day, ASA offers 50 percent off of your registration to attend On Aging 2022. Apply by November 19 to receive 50 percent off the Early Bird Fee. If you apply November 20–February 29, you will receive 50 percent off our standard rate, and after March 1, you will receive 50 percent off our late registration rates (however, we cannot guarantee that we will still be accepting volunteers at that point).

When you complete the application, you can select your requested days and times for your volunteer hours. Please note that the cost of membership is separate from the cost of conference attendance, though they may be purchased together. There are many benefits of membership, including year-round programming and networking opportunities.

Paying for ASA membership all at once can be really difficult. We offer all members the ability to pay for their membership on a monthly basis. This can be done online at the time of purchase and costs as little as $8.33 per month for students and retired professionals. For assistance, email To access the monthly payment option, you must purchase the membership first and separate from your conference registration.

  1. Our Early Bird Rate was the most discounted rate and was available until November 19, 2021.
  2. Students and retired professional members received an additional $50 off the early bird rate if they registered before November 19, 2021.
  3. Students and retired professional members may volunteer at On Aging 2022 and receive 50 percent off the registration rate.

Or freelancers may provide an assignment letter or email from a media organization with the editor/producer’s contact information (telephone and email address) for verification.

  • Freelancers without advance assignments will be considered on an individual basis, but should provide evidence of journalistic work previously produced or published in a subject area related to concerns in aging.

Please note: Conference presenters, marketing, advertising and public relations professionals, and academic or other non-journalistic book authors are not eligible for media badges, even if associated with a news organization.


ASA does not pay speaker fees for the On Aging 2022 conference. We are extremely grateful that all of our speakers donate their time to help us create a dynamic and exciting agenda for our attendees.

As many of you know, this year, we lost a beloved staff member of ASA, Keith Kuo. In his memory, we have created a scholarship fund to deserving ASA members. A limited number of existing ASA members will receive a scholarship that may be used to cover the cost of On Aging 2022 registration, one year of ASA Membership, or travel and lodging while in New Orleans. There will be a limited number of scholarships available. The application process will be announced in ASA News (released weekly on Tuesdays via email) this winter.
