AALS does not provide childcare services onsite at the conference. Consult with the hotel concierge for information.

Consent to Use of Photographic, Video, and Audio Materials

AALS will have a photographer and videographer at special events, sessions, exhibits, and throughout the hotel common areas used for the Annual Meeting. Photos and videos taken during the Annual Meeting will remain the property of AALS and may be distributed or used in future marketing materials. Your attendance at the Annual Meeting indicates your acceptance to be photographed, filmed, or recorded, and to AALS’s use of your image, without payment of any kind, in program(s) and for other purposes designated by AALS in the future.

Continuing Education Credit

AALS has not received certification as a CLE provider for the 2019 Annual Meeting. CLE sign-in sheets will be available in the rear of each session’s meeting room. AALS can provide verification that you attended the session if you sign the CLE sign-in sheet. You may request letters of attendance by writing after the meeting.

Mobile App

The AALS Annual Meeting app, available in the fall, will allow you to easily view program details, speakers, hotel floorplans, exhibitor lists, and social features on your phone or tablet. You will also be able to create a personalized schedule of sessions to attend. The mobile app will contain the most current information, including all the late changes not included in the printed program.


AALS will record, when possible, AALS special events and section programs. These audio recordings will be made available at no charge to faculty and professional staff from AALS member and fee-paid schools on the Annual Meeting website late in January. The recordings may be distributed to the media, including comments from both the speakers and the audience. Speakers who have signed a refusal to record will still be recorded but will be edited out prior to posting or distribution. For questions related to recordings please visit the AALS Information Desk onsite.

Private Room for Nursing

AALS will provide a room for nursing parents each day of the meeting with electrical power, a refrigerator, and a locking door. Please visit the AALS Information Desk located in the Hilton New Orleans Riverside Hotel to request a key.
