Who can attend the ACCP: The Conference 2017?

Per Board policy, our conference is only open to those currently working for a for-profit corporation as a professional in the CSR spectrum. ACCP reserves the right to refuse ineligible registrations. Please do not hesitate to contact Jen Scott with any questions or concerns regarding this policy.

At this time there is not a rate for a student or nonprofit organization.

I am a member of the press — do you have press registration?

If you are interested in this Conference and are employed as a professional editorial staff person (including photographers and camera crews) of print, online, and broadcast media, please contact Maryann Fiala. Other publications staff (non-editorial positions, such as publishers, advertising directors, and advertising representatives) may exhibit at the Conference and pay all related fees.

Will I receive a confirmation of my registration?

When you register online, you will immediately receive a confirmation email.

Do I need to keep my confirmation email?

Yes! Not only is it good to keep for your records, but it also includes your confirmation number which you can use to edit your registration.

Will I be refunded if I have to cancel my registration?

We'll be sorry that you won't be able to join us in San Antonio. Please view The Conference cancellation policy here.


Hotel & Transportation

What is The Conference hotel? Is it suggested that we stay there too? What are the rates?

La Cantera Hill Country Resort, part of the Destination Hotels collection, is the official hotel of The Conference both for meetings and for hotel rooms. To reserve your room and view rates, head here.

Will all conference programming be held at La Cantera Hill Country Resort?

All activities will take place at the host hotel with the exception of the preconference event and one official ACCP evening event. Transportation will be provided to this evening event.

Can I make my hotel reservations now?

Yes!  We suggest you book in advance because rates will be significantly higher otherwise. If you plan on extending your stay, please especially be sure to make your hotel reservations as soon as possible since March brings many spring break travelers to the area. The room block is available until it sells out OR until February 17, 2017.  Rooms in the ACCP conference group rate typically sell out before the deadline, so we advise you to make your reservation as early as possible.

What time can I check into and out of the hotel?

Check in: 4:00pm CT
Check out: 11:00pm CT.

Will transportation be provided during The Conference?

Complimentary transportation will only be provided for the preconference event and any evening events.

The airport is a 20 minute cab ride away from the hotel. Uber is also available in San Antonio. As parking is included in the mandatory resort fee, you may consider renting a vehicle if that makes sense for you.


Exhibitor Experience

When am I able to interact with exhibitors?

Exhibitor booths will be open during breaks and lunch on Monday and Tuesday. Booths will also be open for an extra hour on Monday afternoon.

Are there other ways for me to connect with vendors?

Make sure you schedule an appointment time if you'd like to talk in a smaller group or even one-on-one with an exhibiting company.

I want to exhibit or recommend someone to exhibit.

Great, check out all the exhibitor information here.


Events

Is there an organized preconference group activity planned?

Yes we will sail a private barge down the famous San Antonio Riverwalk  and follow with a tour of The Alamo from approximately 11:30am-3:30pm Central Time. 

Can I buy guest event tickets for the Sunday opening reception, Monday evening event or the Tuesday closing reception? What is the cost?

Guests may accompany attendees to the preconference event or evening events as long as they are not holding a job within the profession and pay the respective guest fee. The guest fee for evening events is approximately $150. The guest fee for the preconference event will be the same cost as the preconference event rate for an attendee of the Conference. We will not be able to accept payment on site. Contact Jen Scott with any questions about the guest policy.


Miscellaneous

Will there be wifi at The Conference?

Wifi will not be offered in the general session or Learning Lab rooms. Wifi fees are included in the mandatory resort fee so that you’ll be able to easily connect in the hotel lobby and your guest room.

What is ACCP's Twitter handle and The Conference hashtag?

ACCP's handle is @accprof. You can use #accp2017 to join the conversation on Twitter.

What is the dress code?

We want you to be comfortable so you can enjoy your conference experience. Business casual dress is encouraged. We also suggest dressing in layers in case you get chilly or warm. Evening events are a bit more casual - wear what you'd like!

In addition, you should leave your heels at home – you’ll be getting your steps in at La Cantera, so you’ll want to have on comfortable shoes.

I am bringing my family with me; will there be activities for them to enjoy?

Your family and friends will love San Antonio and all the Hill Country has to offer, so invite them to join you! To take full advantage of the resort property and its golfing, spa, pool, and shopping opportunities, we encourage you to come early and/or stay after The Conference ends.

Be sure to check out all of the resort’s activity options here.

Is childcare available?

ACCP does not provide childcare. Should you require childcare, it is your responsibility to vet any company you consider thoroughly, not that of ACCP. One option to consider for kids ages 4-12 is La Cantera’s daily Kids Club Camp programming, which offers interactive and engaging indoor and outdoor activities for your kids. To make Kids Club Camp reservations for your child call 210.558.2247.

How can I become a speaker at ACCP: The Conference 2017?

The deadline to submit a proposal was August 5, 2016, and RFPs for ACCP: The Conference 2017 is currently closed.

My question is not here. Whom should I contact?

Please email Jen Scott.
