American Association for Respiratory Care


Day Tripper Package

This year the AARC is offering everyone a more flexible opportunity to attend this premier event with a new program just introduced for 2013. There’s a student package, too.

Individual Attendees…Want to attend AARC Congress 2013, but can’t get the time off from work for all 4 days of the meeting? Perhaps a single day registration is more affordable and right up your alley. The AARC Day Tripper Package is a great opportunity for you and three other therapists to attend the 4-day event that is loaded with education, exhibits, networking, and many other activities.

Managers…Maybe you’ve wanted to send your staff in the past, but your budget can’t absorb multiple, 4-day registrations. Even more importantly, department staffing won’t let you give multiple employees off all at the same time.

Here’s How it Works

  • Order the Day Tripper Voucher Package any time between now and September 27th.
  • You will receive 4 one-day vouchers to Congress 2013 in Anaheim.
  • Each voucher is good for one person for any one of the 4 days of Congress (Nov 16–19).
  • The attendee brings the voucher to the onsite Special Services registration counter on the desired day and uses it to register for that day.
  • The attendee has all the same privileges as other attendees who purchase a one-day registration onsite at the rate of $210 for members or $300 for nonmembers, a savings of up to $143 per person!

Benefits to Attendees

  • Earn CRCEs at premier educational programs
  • Opportunity to visit the largest respiratory care exhibit hall in the world
  • Network with other professionals and meet the “who’s who” in respiratory care

Make it Easy on Yourself

  • Collaborate with your colleagues and decide at the last minute whom will attend—or change it if circumstances change.
  • Mix and match any way that you want. A different person can attend each day. Or 4 people can all attend on one day. Or 2 people can use vouchers for 2 days each. Make it work for you and your schedule.
  • Anyone you select can attend…members or non-members.
