AAPD conferences are ADA compliant. We strive to take the appropriate steps required to ensure that no individual with a disability is excluded, denied services, segregated or otherwise treated differently. Individuals requiring special assistance must make the appropriate notation on the registration form and/or contact the AAPD Meeting Services Department. All requests for special accommodations under ADA must be made allowing enough time for evaluation and appro- priate action by AAPD.


The Scientific Program is business casual. We recommend you have a sweater or light jacket available in case you find the meeting rooms too cold. The Welcome Reception is casual; come dressed in your favorite NFL team gear! The Presidents’ Farewell Dinner is cocktail attire.
