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 activi-ties. Registered spouses are welcome and encouraged to participate in NAHAD activities. Historically, we have found that registered spouses have derived more enjoy-ment 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. In addition to the annual Spouse Event – this year a Salsa and Sangria event on Thursday afternoon - spouses are welcome to attend, with their delegate any of the General Session presentations that they find to be of interest. This fee is also appropriate for guests/companions of the registered delegate.
Who does NAHAD consider a companion? This might be a close friend, your mother-in-law or adult child who is traveling with you to Miami. In order to attend NAHAD functions, a spouse, guest or companion must be registered and must pay the spouse registra-tion 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 NAHAD Miami Street Party at no charge, simply indicate their attendance on the registration form. Children may not attend business sessions or any convention food functions, with the exception of the Miami Street Party. Children over the age of 18 are welcome to attend the Opening Dinner on Thursday evening, but they must register as a Spouse/Companion and pay the fee. NAHAD is offering a children’s party on Thursday evening for younger children while parents are attending the Welcome Reception, Gala Dinner and Entertainment (from 6:00 pm until 10:00 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.
