The American Humanist Association welcomes high school and college students to the 72nd Annual Conference!

Meals are not included, but general seating is available for the three Humanist Awards Banquets starting at 8:00pm (for the dinners) and 1:00pm (for the luncheon).
The AHA Conference is a great opportunity to learn more about the work of a national freethought organization, meet celebrity atheists, and network with leaders in the movement!
