AACE Policy on Disclosure and Resolution of Conflict of Interest
It is the policy of AACE that all CME planning committees, faculty, authors and editors disclose relationships with commercial interests upon nomination or invitation of participation. Disclosure information is reviewed for potential conflicts of interest and, if identified, they are resolved prior to the start of the educational activity. Only those participants who had no conflict of interest or who agreed to an identified resolution process prior to their participation were involved in this CME activity.
The material presented during AACE scientific sessions is being made available by AACE for educational purposes only, and does not necessarily represent the only or best method or procedure appropriate for the medical situations discussed. Although AACE has peer reviewed the presentations, the opinions and views expressed represent the opinions of the presenters and not necessarily those of AACE or its governing body. Therefore, AACE disclaims any and all liability for injury or other damages resulting to an individual attending this meeting or to any third party for claims based upon the use of techniques and/or products presented by any party at this meeting.
Satellite Symposia Registration
Advance registration is required for the scheduled satellite symposia. As with the Workshops and MTE sessions, this requirement is necessary to ensure that appropriate meeting space and materials are provided to accommodate each symposium. Tickets will not be issued and seating will be provided on a first come, first served basis. Satellite symposia registration will open shortly and notification will be sent to all registered attendees. All individuals who have already registered for the Annual Meeting will be able to log on to www.am.aace.com/registration to add their satellite symposia selections to their existing meeting registration. Additionally, all AACE members will be sent individual brochures for each satellite symposium with specific session information, faculty listing and credit designation. All brochures will also include information on how to add a satellite symposium to an existing Annual Meeting registration.
Advance Registration for Meal Functions
AACE must provide a guaranteed number of people for each meal function in advance and is required to pay for that number. AACE only guarantees for the number of people who specifically register for each meal in advance. Please indicate each food function you will attend during the registration process, as it may not be possible to register (due to seating and food limitations) for the function when you arrive at the meeting. Tickets will be required for these events. Please note that not all food functions are open to family or guests.
Dietary/Special Needs Requests
If you have a special request (e.g. kosher, vegetarian, allergies or other special needs), please indicate this instruction once you have logged into registration. AACE will make every effort to fulfill your request. However, we cannot guarantee your request will be available at all times. Please note, regarding kosher meals; failure to collect the requested kosher meal will result in a charge equal to the cost of the meal to the attendee.
