Safety and Security:

We encourage AAAP members to be aware of their surroundings and avoid situations where they feel uncomfortable. Such instances might range from verbal confrontations, protest, or strikes. Review these tips below for staying safe while participating in the meeting and enjoying Jacksonville.

  • Wear your name badge in the hotel. When leaving the hotel property, remove it so as to blend with other people.
  • If you see a demonstration or protest beginning, please contact a member of the AAAP staff, and they will initiate the appropriate response. If you see actions that appear threatening, notify the nearest security officer.
  • Do not engage, defend either side, or subdue person(s) in any type of disturbance. Demonstrators are usually trying to attract media attention. Don’t help them.
  • AAAP representatives will respond to media inquiries. Do not participate in interviews or other media responses.
  • In the unlikely event that outsiders disrupt a scientific session or other event, please follow the AAAP staff’s directions, and avoid becoming involved in the situation.

Your poster presentation should be no bigger than 4’ by 4’. You are expected to be standing near your poster during the poster session on Tuesday, July 9th from 5:15 to 6:30 PM. If you would like to cancel your presentation, please use the change request form.
