Meeting Registration and Attendance Terms
Share |

By registering for or attending an American Philosophical Association (APA) divisional meeting, you agree to the following policies and terms:

Registration Policy

All those attending sessions, including speakers, commentators, and session chairs, are required to register for each meeting they attend. In addition, we ask participants to wear their APA name badges during session hours to identify themselves as registered participants.

During meetings, attendees not displaying a valid name badge may be asked to provide proof of registration. If you are asked to provide proof of registration and are unable to do so, you will be required to register immediately or be removed from the meeting.

Refund Policy

Meeting registration fees are non-refundable. If you are unsure whether you will be able to attend a meeting, you should wait to register on-site, thereby eliminating the problem of having paid for registration and being unable to attend. Advance registration discounts are available online until shortly before a meeting begins.

Photography, Audio, and Video Recording

You consent to being filmed, photographed and recorded during and in connection with the meeting and consent to the use or publication of such recordings in any medium in connection with any promotional, educational or professional purposes of the APA.  You release the APA and its directors, officers, employees, and agents from any and all liability arising from the recordings or their uses, including for infringement of proprietary rights, invasion of privacy, defamation or any other cause of action, and you waive any right to inspect or approve such recordings and any and all rights to payment of royalties in connection therewith.


The APA may provide your name or other required personally identifiable information to the meeting hotel for verification purposes. The APA may contact you with information related to the meeting, including promotional information provided by meeting sponsors. The APA will not disclose your email address to any third party.

Other Terms

The APA expressly disclaims liability for any acts or omissions of the APA and for third parties including facilities, suppliers and exhibitors in conjunction with the meeting. The APA shall not be held liable for personal injury, property damage, theft, loss or damage of any kind suffered by you at or in connection with the meeting.  You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the APA and its directors, officers, employees, and agents, from and against all claims arising out of your actions or omissions in attending the meeting.

The APA shall not be liable for any delays or failure in performance or interruption of services in connection with the meeting resulting directly or indirectly from any cause or circumstance beyond the reasonable control of the APA, including but not limited to, acts of God, force majeure events, war, terrorism, failure of transportation facilities, weather, accidents, fires, electrical failures, strikes, labor disputes, and government orders or regulations.  The APA reserves the right to cancel this meeting without liability. The total amount of any and all liability of the APA will be limited to a refund of the registration fee.

The meeting is a harassment-free event for everyone regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, race, age or religion. Any attendee who displays inappropriate behavior or creates a disturbance or safety hazard is prohibited inside any meeting facility and will be asked to leave the meeting. If you are being harassed or notice an act of harassment, contact a meeting staff member immediately.  The APA shall not be responsible for any defamatory, offensive, or illegal conduct of any meeting attendee.

The opinions, statements, presentations, data, images, videos, documents and other information expressed or otherwise shared by presenters or other participants at the meeting are for informational purposes only. The views and opinions expressed by presenters are not those of the APA, unless expressly indicated otherwise.  The APA is not responsible for the accuracy, quality or reliability of any of the materials presented, or liable for any damages arising therefrom.  The APA reserves the right to substitute an equally qualified presenter in case of an emergency or cancellation.
