Online Convention Manual

The written materials for the Convention will be offered in electronic format via online download. Wi-Fi will be available in all plenary and concurrent session meeting rooms at the New Orleans Marriott, but we encourage you to bring your laptop or tablet with your Convention materials pre-loaded as doing so will expedite your access to the materials.

All registered participants will be able to access the online Convention Manual before, during, and after the program. This format allows you access to the latest information, whether you are in the office or traveling. It also enables you to review the written materials prior to the Convention in order to maximize your learning experience. Please note that a valid email address must be provided in order to receive the online Convention Manual.

  • Prior to the Convention, registered participants will receive an email announcing when the Convention Manual is available online for download. You may print it out in advance at your convenience.
  • On-site, you may use the Wi-Fi in your guest room and the Convention’s plenary and concurrent session meeting rooms to download the written materials. In addition, you may visit the hotel’s business center to print the materials (at your own expense).
  • After the Convention, the Convention Manual and any supplemental materials received after the seminar will be available online to registered participants for a limited time.
