Working journalists are welcome to register for PFD Week and attend the presidential address, general scientific sessions, concurrent sessions, keynote addresses, debates, and live surgery. Journalists may also attend food functions in the exhibit hall, but are required to pay a $75 fee to do so. Please note that the AUGS Business Meeting, special interest group meetings, workshops, roundtables, and Friday evening social event are closed to press.

If you are a member of the press, email for a press registration code. Please include your name, credentials, title, and affiliation.  Press identification is required, and the American Urogynecologic Society (AUGS) reserves the right to deny individual press registration requests.
