Please read the AAA Press Credentials Policy before submitting your registration.
please send the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org:
Registration prior to the meeting is strongly recommended.
On-site press registrants will be asked to provide verification of editorial status. Accepted credentials include a business card from a news media outlet, a recent bylined article, or a letter of assignment from a media organization.
Organizations will be allowed to secure up to two, non-transferable AAA Press Badges per organization provided the person securing the accreditation is a verified freelancer (blogger or otherwise) or staff member of a news organization. The news organization must have a circulation, listenership or viewership beyond the AAA’s internal staff and membership, and applicants must provide evidence supporting this verification when submitting their application form, including a copy of the publication (if applicable).
Persons accepted for press accreditation will be notified at least one week prior to the Annual Meeting (Wednesday, November 22, 2017). Credentials and name badges will be located in the Press Room (AAA staff at the registration desk will notify members of the press of the location) and must be obtained and prominently displayed before entering any AAA activity.
Persons not accepted for press accreditation will be notified up to one week prior to the conference (Wednesday, November 22, 2017) and will be denied access as credentialed press to the conference.
Journalists who have secured accreditation may pick up their credentials between 7:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Wednesday, November 29, through Saturday, December 2. Walk-ups will also be honored. Journalists must come in person to register and must present press identification.
