Make sure to register for these networking opportunities!
Networking opportunities are provided through some structured events, but are not limited to those! These include:
The general dress code for the meeting is business casual. Although you might be able to get away with less, keep in mind that many important people will be walking around, so dress to impress! The only exception to this is the APSA Saturday night dinner, which is business attire (black tie optional). Also note that the hotel is generally on the colder side, so remember to bring layers.
There are a few events that are specific for each organization. While APSA has its Friday Welcome Reception and Saturday night dinner, ASCI and AAP also have their own events. ASCI has their dinner on Friday evening, which is only for its members but which APSA members can buy tickets for (although tickets sell out every year). AAP has its dinner on Saturday. The dinner itself is only for AAP members; however, the talk immediately following their dinner is open to all attendees as is the following dessert reception.
APSA is dedicated to hosting an Annual Meeting that is safe and positive for all. No behavior which contributes to an unsafe or unwelcoming environment for anyone will be tolerated. All participants in the Annual Meeting, including venue staff and guests, are expected to help ensure that the Annual Meeting is a welcoming environment for all.
We expect all participants to refrain from unacceptable behavior, which includes but is not limited to harassment, discrimination, intimidation (including threat of harm, physical or otherwise), inappropriate behavior, and physical assault (including unwelcome touching of any nature). Treat your fellow participants at the Annual Meeting with respect and dignity.
Should you witness unacceptable behavior, please notify meeting staff at the Registration Desk outside of the International Ballroom or contact APSA headquarters (email@example.com). Conference staff will be glad to help anyone contact venue security or local law enforcement and otherwise assist those who have witnessed or were the target of unacceptable behavior.
Anyone found to be engaging in unacceptable behavior is expected to immediately comply when told to cease. Additionally, anyone who engages in unacceptable behavior may be subject to immediate action by meeting leadership, including but not limited to immediate removal from the Annual Meeting, without refund; barring from future Annual Meetings; and/or referral to local law enforcement.
