Press Guidelines

  • Information presented at the Annual Meeting is the responsibility of the presenters and does not represent the views, policies or positions of the APA. Any event not listed in the Annual Meeting program should not be reported as happening in association with or as having any relationship to APA.
  • Press may attend scientific sessions (except those limited to APA members) as observers, not participants. Interaction with presenters and attendees is permitted before and after the session.

Credentialed press who fail to comply with these guidelines will forfeit their press credentials and admittance to this Annual Meeting and possibly future APA meetings. APA reserves the right to deny or terminate press privileges to credentialed press or non-profit public relations staff at any time prior to or during the meeting.
