Host a Reception

Hosting a Reception/Social or Event at ACPA19

Whether your goal is to outreach to potential new students or employees, connect with alumni and friends, or uphold a longstanding ACPA tradition, hosting an event for your institution, entity group, or organization is a great way to become part of Convention at #ACPA19!

Other Ancillary-Type Space

In addition to receptions, requests can be submitted for spaces used for non-educational programs.  These could include meetings and other get-togethers. If a program is educational in nature, it needs to be submitted as an Educational Session.

Process for Requests

All ancillary requests must be submitted through the portalPlease provide as much detail as possible. All requests received by the deadline are  considered, scheduled, and confirmed based on available space on the given days of the convention. While we do our best to accommodate all requests, ACPA19 cannot guarantee you will receive your first choice. The deadline for ACPA Entity Groups to submit requests is 21 September, 2018. The deadline for outside groups to submit requests is 2 November, 2018.
