What does a virtual registration include?

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.

2021 Fall Conference Update Questions

Questions & Answers

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

A:

The conference would then be held virtually over the March meeting dates.

back to top

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

A:

Yes.

back to top

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

A:

For right now, we're not allowing format changes, but we likely will as we get closer to the conference. Our concern is that people will request changes now and covid conditions could change dramatically in 6 months and would require another change. For planning purposes, that is very difficult, so one set of changes closer to the dates of the conference would be easier for everyone.   If you are currently scheduled for an in-person session and you cannot participate in the conference over the new dates--in any format--please let us know and we will remove you from the program.

Q: What if I already registered?

A:

Your registration will be good for the new March meeting dates. If you cannot attend the meeting over the new dates, please email us at registation@appam.org and we will refund your registration fee.

Q: What if I already booked a hotel room for November?

A:

The hotel is automatically cancelling all reservations so no action is required by you. You will receive a cancellation email shortly and the one-night deposit refund will show in your account within 10 - 15 business days after receiving that email. If you have questions regarding your reservation, please email mailto:JWAustinGH@whitelodging.com. If you have questions regarding your refund, please email mailto:JWAustinAccounting@whitelodging.com. If you have reservations questions for APPAM, please email mailto:bclark@appam.org.

 

The room block for the March 2022 conference will open in the winter so please stay tuned.

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

A:

We will figure out what requirements will be as we get closer to March and better understand the COVID conditions in Austin and elsewhere.

back to top

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 3 - 5, 2022 at the Washington Hilton in Washington, DC.
