The Non-Attendee Guest registration fee (age 21+) is $80/person and allows admittance to the Job and Fellowship Fair, Welcome Reception, PM&R Pavilion, and Sunday Brunch featuring PhyzTalks. Co-workers, or those associated within the physiatry industry, do not qualify for a non-attendee guest registration. These individuals must register in the appropriate professional or exhibitor category. Guest badges do not allow for admittance into educational sessions, Lunch and Learns and complimentary lunch options in the PM&R Pavilion, Satellite Symposia or ticketed events. Tickets for the President’s Reception are available for purchase separately from the Non-Attendee Guest registration fees.
Business casual attire is recommended for the Annual Assembly. We suggest you dress comfortably and have a jacket or sweater available in case you find the meeting rooms to be chilly.
Open seating sessions are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. AAPM&R does its best to match room size with anticipated demand; however, interest in a topic occasionally exceeds seating capacity. Seating limits are strictly enforced by the Convention Center Fire Marshal. We encourage you to arrive at meeting rooms as early as possible for best seating.
Interfaith Gathering Room
When selecting dates for our Annual Assembly, we do our best to respect religious holidays. To assist our members attending the Assembly, the Academy offers an Interfaith Gathering Room that may be used for religious practices. If you’d like to request a gathering room, contact email@example.com prior to the event.
By virtue of participation, meeting registrants grant to the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAPM&R), its representatives, and employees the right to take photographs and record video of them in connection with the 2019 AAPM&R Annual Assembly. It is agreed that AAPM&R may use such photographs and video of registrants with or without the registrant’s name and for any lawful purpose, including (for example) such purposes as publicity, illustration, advertising, and web content.
If you experience conduct at an Academy event that you believe is inconsistent with the Academy’s behavioral expectations, please contact the Academy’s Director of Human Resources at (847) 737-6068. If you are concerned for your safety or the safety of another person or are the victim of a crime, contact the local police.
