Access to all hybrid sessions, all virtual sessions, all streamed sessions (Super Sessions, Presidential Address and Membership Meeting), as well as recordings of all these sessions afterwards. Hybrid and virtual sessions will be held as Zoom Meetings so virtual attendees can interact directly with the presenters.  All streamed sessions (Super Sessions and special events) will be held as Zoom Webinars so virtual attendees may submit their questions via the Q&A feature but will not be able to speak directly to the presenters. 

60+ sessions will be available to the virtual registrant, or 20% of the total content of #2021APPAM.

**Virtual registration will not be refunded at any point. 

** Government employee discount not available for virtual registration.

2021 Fall Conference Update Questions

Questions & Answers

Q: What if COVID isn't better by March?

A:

We take our staff and attendee's safety very seriously. We have worked hard to make the conference as COVID safe as possible. Please see our page that details all the precautions we have taken. Additionally, there is a virtual option for attendees who don't feel safe in person.

Q: Will you require vaccinations, masks and social distancing in March?

A:

Attendees are required to be fully vaccinated by March 12, 2022. Masks are required indoors at the conference as well. At this time, Texas does not require masks indoors so we can only control our meeting space, not the hotel.

Regarding social distancing, we encourage attendees to avoid social gatherings that make them uncomfortable. Switching to a less populated session or a virtual session are always options if a room is full.

Q: Will you still keep virtual, hybrid and in-person sessions?

A:

Yes. We have 48 sessions that are virtual or hybrid.

Q: What if I want to change the format of my session?

A:

We cannot accept additional format change requests. You will receive a separate email shortly with your presentation details and instructions on how to withdraw, change presenting authors, and make other submission revisions. If you have questions about your submission, please email conferencesupport@appam.org.

Submissions for the November 2022 conference in Washington D.C. open in early February, so if you must withdraw, we hope you resubmit for the fall and join us there.

Q: What else are you doing to make the conference safe?

A:

In addition to requiring vaccinations and masks, we will have sanitizing stations set up throughout the conference area. Masks will be available at the registration desk as well. 

We will reduce the amount of self-serve buffet stations at food & beverage events. Coffee will remain self-serve and snacks will be individually wrapped.

Q: What if I get COVID right before the conference?

A:

Because we know that things can change quickly these days, we are removing our registration cancellation fees and hotel deposit fees.

To cancel registration, please contact . To cancel your hotel room, please call 512-474-4777.

Q: Why are we meeting in Texas when they recently passed SB8, a very restrictive law against abortion?

A:

We know that many of you are upset about this law and wondered why we wouldn't move the conference. For a conference APPAM's size, we contract 5 years out from the date of the conference. Breaking a hotel contract would mean paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in penalties and would also mean we would lose a place to have a face-to-face conference. Moving a conference like this is virtually impossible given the time frame.

Q: Will the Spring 2022 Conference impact the Fall 2022 Conference?

A:

No. The 2022 conference will take place as scheduled November 17 - 19, 2022 at the Washington Hilton in Washington, DC.

Q: Will you allow vaccine exemptions?

A:

We will not allow vaccine exemptions. Those who are not vaccinated may attend virtually.
