Press registration at the Annual Meeting is extended to working journalists on assignment, including photo journalists, videographers, producers, web-based media, writers of the general mental health and medical press and news staff from journals. Please complete this form to apply for press registration. Your information will be reviewed and your registration approved or denied based on your credentials.

Please carefully review our Press Guidelines for complete information on our policies for admitting credentialed press to the APA Annual Meeting. Once you have completed your registration, you will receive an email confirmation. This is a tentative receipt. The APA Office of Corporate Communications and Public Affairs will review all information and then send an official receipt that will allow you press access to the 2020 Annual Meeting.

Past acceptance of press credentials does not guarantee an official press registration in 2020. Please watch for the official receipt and approval. 

Credentials are available for public relations representatives for certain non-profit medical societies. Email or call 202-459-9732 for more information and to obtain a public relations registration.
