NAHAD SpouseSpouse/Companion 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. In addition to the annual Spouse Event – this year a special brunch on Sunday morning - 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 Marco Island. 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.
