Professional membership to the American Diabetes Association is not required to register for the Scientific Sessions. However, by becoming a member you will save $320.00 on your registration. Professional Membership provides exclusive, members-only education and resources that benefit you, your patients, and your practice.

You may become a Professional Member when you register for the meeting. To register, please visit ADA's 79th Scientific Sessions Registration and Housing Site. Log in as a Non-Member with your email address and proceed through the Attendee Information page until you get to the ADA Professional Membership Options page where you can select your desired membership category.

If you are a current member but your membership expires prior to June 30, 2019, you may renew your membership when you register for the meeting. To register, please visit ADA's 79th Scientific Sessions Registration and Housing Site.
 Log in as a Member with your email address or your Professional Member ID number and zip/postal code and proceed through the Attendee Information page until you get to the ADA Professional Membership Options page where you can renew your current membership.

Note: If you join or renew your membership after you have registered, you will not be eligible for the member rates as you must be a member at the time of registration. Associate and Emerging Nation Memberships do not qualify for meeting discounts.

Members must use their Professional Membership ID number or email address to sign in and register. If you do not know your Membership ID number:
  • Call ADA's Professional Membership Department at (800) 232-3472 (U.S. and Canada) or (703) 253-4999 (International) between 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
  • Email membership@diabetes.org to request your membership ID number.
