Cancellations and Refunds
Cancellation requests require written notification to AANP at firstname.lastname@example.org and must be received by 11:59 p.m. CT on Monday, May 6. If received by May 6, a refund will be issued minus a $75 administrative fee or a $50 administrative fee for student registrations (entry-level student members only). After Monday, May 6, no refund will be granted.
If you do not cancel in writing by Monday, May 6, and do not attend, no refund will be granted.
If you cancel your conference registration, remember to cancel your housing reservation within the AANP housing block. AANP has the right to remove any housing reservations that are not supported by a conference registration.
Policies are hotel specific. Please review the AANP housing block website for policies specific to deposits, early departure fees and cancellations.
To provide a safe and healthy environment, the ICC is a non-smoking facility. All interior areas are designated as non-smoking areas.
Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA)
The ICC complies with the requirements specified by the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA). AANP is responsible for all non-permanent accessibility requirements. If you have any questions or require special accommodations or auxiliary aid relating to a disability for your conference attendance, please notify AANP at email@example.com or 512-442-4262 no later than Monday, May 13.
Live animals are prohibited within the ICC other than animal(s) that serve a guide or service function as defined by ADA. The ADA defines service animals as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities.
Firearms and Weapons
Firearms and weapons are prohibited on the convention center premises.
Registered Attendees: Registered attendees must wear their official conference name badge at all times to access conference events. There will be a $25 fee to reprint a lost badge.
Guests of Registered Attendees: Guest badges may be purchased for $50 each for persons aged 16 and older. This guest badge allows entrance into the Exhibit Hall only.
Children, including infants, under the age of 16 are not allowed in conference sessions or the Exhibit Hall due to safety concerns, audio recording and maintaining an appropriate learning environment.
Attire is business casual. The ICC strives to keep rooms at a comfortable temperature, but layered clothing is strongly suggested. Comfortable shoes are highly recommended.
Standing and Sitting in Classrooms
Sitting in chairs is required in classrooms for the majority of presentations due to Fire Marshal regulations. Sitting on floors is not permitted. Standing is very limited and not allowed unless there is a hands-on or networking portion of the session, or you have a medical or health condition. Please kindly inform the classroom assistant(s) if you have a medical or health condition and need to stand during part of a session.
In the event AANP should find it necessary to cancel or postpone the 2019 AANP National Conference for any reason, including but not limited to low registration, strikes, acts of nature, war, terrorist acts or other circumstances beyond AANP’s control, AANP’s liability shall be limited to refund of registration fees paid to AANP.
