APHA Annual Meeting Participation Policy/Disclaimer
APHA, its contractors and attending news media may be photographing, videotaping, audio-taping or webcasting scientific sessions and events at the Annual Meeting. By attending the APHA Annual Meeting, attendees acknowledge these activities and agree to allow their image to be used by APHA in association publications, on APHA’s website, and in marketing and promotional materials. Photo images are available for sale to Annual Meeting attendees and may also be shared with the media. Attendees at the Annual Meeting waive all claims against APHA for any liability resulting from these uses.
Only official contracted APHA vendors and working journalists with APHA approved press credentials will be permitted to video and/or audio-tape general sessions, the exhibit hall, Special Sessions and scientific sessions (including oral, roundtable and posters). Individuals recording with personal video/audio equipment or other recording devices (i.e. cell phones, digital or film cameras or tape recorders) without prior permission from APHA or without proper credentials will be asked to cease recording or using these devices immediately.
Annual Meeting attendees and participants agree to conduct themselves in a manner appropriate for a gathering of health professionals. Inappropriate behavior or unauthorized demonstrations or gatherings creating a disturbance, disruption or safety hazard are prohibited inside any meeting facility or the exhibit hall. Participants found disrupting any part of the APHA Annual Meeting (including General Sessions, Special Sessions and Scientific Sessions), conducting themselves in a manner unbecoming a public health professional, or violating these policies will be asked to leave the session or facility and may be prohibited from further Annual Meeting attendance.
