For the comfort and health of all attendees, smoking is not permitted at any AGA function. The Convention Center is a non-smoking facility. However, there are designated points outside the facility.
Recognizing the emphasis on networking through receptions and social events and the potential for alcohol abuse, AGA encourages attendees to drink responsibly. Supporting this policy, AGA offers nonalcoholic beverages at all functions where alcohol is served. Alcohol will not be served to anyone under the age of 21.
As a courtesy to speakers and other attendees, please refrain from the use of PDAs or cell phones during presentations. We ask that you kindly turn off your phone/PDA or set it to vibrate and leave the session if you receive a call.
AGA takes photographs during its meetings and events for use in Association advertising, newsletters and other promotional materials, whether in print, electronic or other media, including the AGA website. By participating in this conference you grant AGA the right to use your name and photograph for such purposes.
AGA selects lunch menus we hope everyone will enjoy. We realize that some individuals have dietary restrictions and food allergies. Attendees who notified us about food allergies or dietary restrictions that prevent them from eating the standard entrée selection are provided with a vegetarian/vegan meal based as closely as possible on their specific dietary needs.
Due to the large number of attendees, substitutions to the vegetarian meal or the standard conference meal may not be possible. Please make alternative meal arrangements if you have several food allergies or very specific dietary restrictions, as our food and beverage options may not meet your needs.
AGA will do its best to accommodate all dietary requests; however because the focus is on food allergies, we cannot always guarantee requests such as low-fat, low-salt, low-carb, sugar-free, etc. Alternate soups, salads or desserts also may not be available.
AGA strives to hold meetings that are accessible to all. Please tell us what you require to help make your participation more enjoyable and meaningful. If you require special assistance, auxiliary aids or other reasonable accommodations to fully participate in this event, please let us know. Any information regarding your disability will remain confidential.
To help ensure your personal safety and peace of mind throughout the conference, we have included your emergency contact information on the back of your name badge. There is also space to write down medical conditions or allergies. Please take a moment to verify that the information is correct and mark any changes on your badge.
