  • Registered for the Main Conference? Meals included: reception (March 28); breakfasts, lunches, and receptions (March 29-30)

What should I wear?
AMGA meetings are business casual. Please note that, often, variations in the air conditioning in the hotel meeting space can sometimes result in rooms that are too cold or too warm. We recommend you bring clothes where it will be easy to add or remove layers as needed.

How can I download the AMGA app?
To download our app, search “AMGA” in the Apple App or Google Play store. During the conference, you can use the app to create your own schedule, view presentations, evaluate sessions, and more.

How can I access handouts?
AMGA's Annual Conference is a "green" conference and offers session handouts electronically via our website and app. We will have wireless internet available in all meeting rooms and throughout our conference area. However, if you still want to have printouts of the presentations, we urge you to download and print them. Handouts will be available in mid March.

When can I check-in on site?
Conference attendees can check-in at AMGA’s registration desk in the Potomac Foyer, located on the Convention Center side of the hotel:

  • Wednesday, March 27     4:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, March 28         7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.

This $200 pass gives your guest access to the exhibit hall for the meals and receptions for the main conference (breakfasts, lunches, and receptions in the Exhibit Hall March 29-30; farewell event on March 30).

This registration does not include participation in the spouse/guest program. As part of this offering, AMGA is coordinating special activities for spouses/guests who are visiting National Harbor while attendees are participating in the conference sessions. An additional fee will be required to participate in these added activities on Friday and Saturday.

How do I get CME/credit for attending?
The Credit Request Form can be completed a few different ways:

  • Mail the completed form to AMGA, One Prince Street, Alexandria, VA 22314
  • Fax the completed form to 703.548.1890

AMGA will follow up within one month of the conference with an emailed certificate.

Does AMGA have a code of ethics policy which applies to meetings?
Yes. Our Code of Ethics (available here) applies at all AMGA meetings, conferences, forums, and meeting-related events, including those sponsored by organizations other than AMGA but held in conjunction with AMGA events in which they participate. Attendees should familiarize themselves with our code of ethics.
