I thought about going, but I'd have to have paid for the entire thing out of my own pocket. Bummer because I live relatively close by.

I really wish I had known about this earlier. I would have made the trip out :( Planning on going for the summer one in MD though.

[I didn't make it to Omaha, Philadelphia, and New Orleans.]

Early bird registration is early-Nov for the Winter Meetings, late-May for the Summer Meetings.
Deadlines for contributed talks and posters in early-September for the Winter Meetings, early-March for the Summer Meetings.
Registration is roughly $400+ for members, add another $200 for non-members... the students rate is about $50.
Of course you have to factor in travel and lodging and food.

Yeah that isn't cheap, but I'm willing to try it out. It seems like a nice place to meet PF members and network with teachers. How are you finding it?

At the end of a busy semester, these AAPT conferences help to recharge me.
I usually give a poster (or an occasional talk) on my work... and look to meet up with folks.
There are usually interesting presentations that inspire me to implement them at my home institution.
I am thankful that my institutions [I've been moving around, seeking someplace more permanent]
have been financially generous in supporting my attendance.
