At the Eastern APA meetings, the registration fee for students is $10. What if the APA waived registration entirely for students? Not just fees — students would not be required to register.
1. Transfer of $10 from the membership at large to students.
2. Vastly reduce the lines and hassle at conference registration.
1. Philosophers who look like students but aren't might try to get away with not paying.
2. Philosophers who are students and don't look like students might get funny looks.
Please list other advantages and disadvantages, criticisms of my purported advantages and disadvantages, and obvious things that I have overlooked, in comments.
