Spouse Registration Fee

NAHAD’s Spouse Registration Fee is designed to be an economical way for your spouse or companion who is over the age of 18 to attend all of the convention activities. Registered spouses are welcome and encouraged to participate in NAHAD activities. Historically, we have found that registered spouses have derived more enjoyment and received more value in the form of a sense of full participation, life-long friendships, and support of the NAHAD delegate. The spouse fee is carefully calculated to cover the direct costs of spouse meals and spouse materials. The following meal functions are included in the spouse fee: Saturday’s Welcoming Reception (meal equivalent of dinner), Sunday’s Spouse Brunch, and the Cocktail Reception and Dinner on Tuesday with entertainment by Michael Martin Murphey. In addition, spouses are welcome to attend, with their delegate, Monday’s breakfast and any of the General Session presentations that they find to be of interest. The spouse registration fee also covers the cost of spouse materials and the NAHAD spouse program on Sunday morning. This fee is also appropriate for guests/companions of the registered delegate. Who does NAHAD consider a guest or companion? This might be your mother-in-law or adult child who is traveling with you to Phoenix, Arizona. In order to attend NAHAD functions, a spouse, guest or companion must be registered and must pay the spouse registration fee to receive a badge and gain admission to NAHAD food functions and to participate in tours and events.

Children (under Age 18)

There is no charge for registered children in attendance at the meeting. Please indicate the names and ages of your children on the Registration Form on page 11 and include your home address. Your child is welcome to attend the Welcoming Reception at no charge. There are several exhibits at the Museum of Musical Instruments that are specifically geared to children's enjoyment. Children may not attend business sessions or any convention food functions, with the exception of the Welcoming Reception. Children over the age of 18 are welcome to attend the Closing Dinner on Tuesday evening, but they must register as a Guest and pay the Guest fee. NAHAD is offering a children’s party on Tuesday evening for younger children while parents are attending the Closing Reception, Dinner and Entertainment (from 6:30 pm until 10:30 pm). There is a fee charged. Please register your child(ren) on page 12 for this event.


Admittance to convention activities will be by badge. Non-registered attendees, guests or spouses will not receive a badge. Optional tours and recreational activities are only open to registered attendees.
