AASP Duty of Care
We required all attendees, speakers, and staff to wear face masks (cloth, disposable) throughout the conference.
Live Streamed Sessions for Hybrid Conference
AASP leadership offered hybrid sessions for individuals who prefer to participate virtually and watch sessions through live streaming. Conference registration fees were the same for in-person and virtual attendance. Livestreaming session options are indicated below in the schedule at-a-glance.
Explanation about conference rates: For attendees attending in-person, part of your registration costs covered breakfast, lunch and snacks during the day and at the reception. For those attending virtually, registration covered the A/V equipment, camera operators, and online platform licenses (i.e., ZOOM, Whova). The AASP Executive Board is striving to meet the unique needs of members and non-members as we navigate these unusual times. We welcome feedback as we adapt our professional development offerings. Our goal is to provide high-quality, relevant trainings along with opportunities to safely network with friends and colleagues. The Whova platform will provide ways to engage with others in fun and informative ways whether attending at the conference site or online.
