Dependent Child Event Attendance Policy

The AAAL Annual Conference is family friendly.

Everyone who attends must be registered and have a badge. Badges for children of registered attendees are free. For the purposes of this policy, “children” are defined as birth children, step children, adopted children, and dependents. It is requested that children be registered in advance in conjunction with their parent(s), however child registration is available onsite at the registration desk.

Children under 14 years of age must be accompanied by an adult guardian at all times. Guardians are asked to help maintain a professional, disturbance-free exhibition environment.

Children under 18 are not allowed in the exhibition area during exhibition move-in and move-out for their own safety. Please note that for reasons of security, all children must wear a badge identifying with whom they are attending. In addition, AAAL is committed to providing a space for lactation needs. 

Please note that AAAL, nor the hotel, will be providing childcare during the conference. Children will be the responsibility of the parent.
