This year, the Conference Planning Branch in conjunction with the ATI Board decided to split the Annual Conference and General Meeting into an in-person Conference and an entirely online Annual General Meeting (AGM). The AGM will take place on November 9th, 10th, 16th, and 17th. Click here for more information about the 2024 AGM. We will spend a limited amount of time at the in-person Conference introducing the year’s proposals and enhancing members’ familiarity with our remarkable Formal Consensus process. 


Please review all information about the conference before registering.

Annual Conference Assistants

We need three trainee assistants to help us this year! ATI trainee members are invited to apply to serve as conference assistants for the ATI Annual Conference in the UK this Fall. The conference assistants will need to be available for the pre-day and the whole conference. Tasks shared by the three assistants include:

  • ​Pre-day activities
  • Registration preparation and assistance
  • Setting up and clearing up rooms before and after workshops
  • Help with small tasks for making the conference and meeting run smoothly

Assistants are NOT required to work during workshops, so that they can take full advantage of this training opportunity.

In exchange for your help ATI will waive your conference registration fee. Other associated fees such as room and board will not be covered by ATI.

We are interested in working with people who have never come to an ATI Annual Conference, as well as those who have some conference experience. It is a valuable opportunity for trainees who need the financial assistance to be able to attend an ATI Annual Conference!

If you believe you have qualities or skills that make you an excellent choice for a conference assistant, please outline them in a brief letter and email it to the ATI office. Give us your name, the training program you attend, or the name of your primary trainer, a brief letter of recommendation from your trainer and contact information. Please let us know why this opportunity is important to you.

Applications are due by Sunday, June 30, 2024.

We encourage all trainees who are interested to apply. You do not need English as a first language to be considered. ATI Trainee membership is free for the first year, so if you are not an ATI member currently but want to be one you are welcome to join and apply.
