Registration for ASCD Empower17 does not include registration to the Pre-Conference Institutes, the keynote luncheons, Meet the Mentor sessions, and other selected conference events.
Attendees must be 18 years of age or older to attend the Pre-Conference Institutes and the conference.
Registrations are accepted on a full-payment, first-come, first-served basis only. ASCD processes confirmations within 48 hours after receipt of registration. Please do not make travel arrangements until you have received your registration confirmation.
ASCD has a strong commitment to high standards of scholarship and professional development. Commercial solicitation is entirely prohibited in all ASCD Empower17 conference sessions (except Technology Showcase and Meet the Mentor Sessions).
Solicitation of business within the Exhibit Show by persons other than exhibitors is strictly prohibited. Please immediately report any violations to the ASCD staff.
In an effort to enhance security, ASCD requires attendees to wear their conference name badge at all times during conference hours. Conference attendees can pick up their badges in the registration area and are encouraged to follow the express check-in procedure to reduce time waiting in line.
Badges must be worn to gain admission to sessions, the Exhibit Show, and the shuttle buses. Your badge not only indicates that you are fully registered for the conference, but it is also a courtesy to other registrants.
Please remember to be safety conscious and take off your badges when you are not on-site at the Anaheim Convention Center.
Please note our policy that children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times while in the Exhibit Show.
All sessions fill on a first-come, first-served basis. For your safety, and because of fire regulations, meeting rooms that fill to capacity will be restricted.
ASCD staff and convention center personnel must follow local fire regulations and will ask participants in overcrowded rooms to leave the room.
Standing or sitting on the floor is not an option; only persons occupying a chair will be allowed to remain in the session. Whenever possible, we have attempted to honor presenters' room-size requests.
Although we try, we cannot always accurately anticipate attendance. There are approximately 30 sessions at any given time during the conference; it is wise to select alternate sessions in advance if you are unable to arrive early enough to get seating at your first choice.
Your registration, attendance, or participation in ASCD meetings, conferences, and other activities constitutes permission for ASCD and its licensees to interview, photograph, capture, and record your likeness and name, in all media now known or later developed ("Recording"), and to edit, duplicate, distribute, broadcast, use, or otherwise disseminate the Recording, in whole or part, alone or with other information, worldwide, in perpetuity, for use in connection with the event and in furtherance of ASCD's mission, all without further approval by you or obligation of compensation. You release ASCD and its licensees, and each and all persons involved, from any liability in connection with use of the Recording.
If you have questions about our policy, please e-mail us.
Member and attendee actions influence ASCD events. To support the goal of providing a positive experience for all participants, we ask that you consider your effect and make good choices when using shared resources at the conference.
With this in mind, we ask that all participants
Register and book your hotel before the hotel cutoff date, March 13, 2017.
