General Information

Code of Conduct and Behavior Policies

We value the participation of each member of the NAN community and want all attendees to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. Accordingly, all attendees, guests, speakers, exhibitors, and volunteers are expected to show respect and courtesy to others at all times. All communication and behavior, in-person, online, or otherwise, should be appropriate for a professional environment. Those violating these rules may be asked to leave the conference with or without a refund at the sole discretion of the National Academy of Neuropsychology. 

Health and Safety

We invite all attendees, sponsors, speakers, exhibitors, volunteers and other participants to help NAN realize a safe and positive conference experience for everyone. The Annual Conference will be organized in accordance with the latest health and safety regulations, guidelines, and recommendations, as directed by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the local Pennsylvania Department of Public Health & Environment.

As of May 25, 2023: No public health orders are currently in effect in Philadelphia. If the public health orders are to be updated all members and attendees would be notified of the change in city mandates. For the most up to date information visit:

*If local or state guidelines and regulations were to change you may at any time be asked by the city of Philadelphia to wear a mask indoors, show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test 48 hours prior to checking into the event. 

We request you not attend NAN’s conference in-person while experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19. A list of symptoms outlined by the CDC can be found here.

NAN asks attendees:  
• Respect the requests of NAN and hotel employees. 
• Comply with foot traffic management guidance, including signage, conference volunteer directions, floor markings, entrance and exit signs, and other direction as required.

NAN will make every effort to accommodate social distancing within sessions and common spaces when possible.

We expect all in-person participants (including NAN employees, moderators, attendees, vendors, sponsors, speakers, and volunteers) to uphold the principles of this Code of Conduct. This Code of Conduct covers the in-person event and all related events (social or otherwise). 

NAN reserves the right to take any action deemed necessary and appropriate, including immediate removal from the meeting without warning or refund, in response to any incident of unacceptable behavior, and NAN reserves the right to prohibit attendance at any future meeting, virtually or in person. NAN has zero-tolerance for any form of discrimination or harassment, including but not limited to sexual harassment by participants or our staff at our meetings. If you experience harassment or hear of any incidents of unacceptable behavior, NAN asks that you inform either Dr. William Perry, NAN Executive Director, or Kate Braddon, Education and Events Manager, so that we can take the appropriate action.

The above policies may be revised at any time by NAN and are non-negotiable. 

Guests of Attendees at In-Person Conference

Guest badges are available for purchase during the registration process. Badges for adults are $75 and children are $25. A guest badge permits access to the food and beverage functions at the Annual Conference, including continental breakfast on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, as well as the Welcome Reception on Wednesday evening. Guest badges for adults and children do not permit access to conference sessions or the exhibit hall outside of the designated reception time. Guests without a badge will be asked to leave. Guests are also expected to abide by the Code of Conduct and Behavior Policies, as well as Health and Safety Guidelines.

Course Handouts

Course handouts will be distributed to attendees electronically prior to the conference. No printed course handouts will be distributed at course sessions. If a handout does not appear online, the presenter has not granted NAN permission to share their handout.

Badge Policy

After checking in at the Conference Registration desk, your badge is your pass to all scheduled conference activities. You must wear your badge to be admitted to workshops, the exhibit hall, and poster sessions. You will be denied entry if you do not display your badge.

Photo Release and Consent Statement

Please note: Your registration for a National Academy of Neuropsychology program includes your acceptance and agreement to the following photo release and consent statement:

I give permission to the National Academy of Neuropsychology to take photographs of me while I am engaging in neuropsychology education workshops. I also grant the right to edit, use and re-use said products for any and all educational, public service, marketing and outreach purposes selected by the National Academy of Neuropsychology. I release any and all rights, titles and interest I may have in said photographs, movies, video tapes, web-site productions, finished pictures, reproductions, copies or negatives of the same in connection with such uses.

Ethics & Diversity Content

The APA does not accredit CE sessions as ethics or diversity sessions per se, nor does NAN as an APA CE provider. Whether a CE session meets requirements for ethics or diversity training is a distinction made by state authorities regulating the practice of psychology who require on-going ethics or diversity training for license renewal. It is typical for such regulators to require that ethics or diversity training be received in a CE-accredited session (NAN is an APA CE provider) and then to examine the content of the specific CE session to make sure that it meets their requirements for ethics or diversity training. Consequently, NAN recommends that attendees consult with their individual regulatory authority in advance if ethics or diversity credit is desired.
