We appreciate the effort all our speakers and lab assistants put into making AU an effective, valuable conference.  Each AU class has a primary speaker. The primary speaker is responsible for meeting requirements, submitting all class materials, and completing all class tasks. This person will receive the complimentary AU 2015 Pass (and if applicable, the honorarium), regardless of how many speakers are presenting.
