Hosting a Reception, Social, or Event at ACPA22
Whether your goal is to outreach to potential new students or employees, connect with alumni and friends, or uphold a longstanding ACPA tradition, hosting an event for your institution, entity group, or organization is a great way to become part of Convention at ACPA22!
In addition to receptions, ancillary requests can be submitted to spaces used for non-educational programs. These could include meetings and other get-togethers.
If a program will be educational in nature, it needs to be submitted as an Educational Session Proposal.
Process for Requests
All ancillary requests were to be submitted through the Ancillary Requests Form by 4 November 2021. The process is now closed.
Notification regarding the specific location, date, and time of your event will take place by early December.
Food and Beverage
Food and beverage is optional for your event. All catering costs need to be covered by your group. The deadline to confirm your food and beverage requests is 17 December 2021, with final confirmation of counts by 31 January 2022.
Please note all food must be ordered through the catering menus for meetings and events taking place in the America’s Center Convention Center and Marriott Grand Hotel. Outside food and beverage is not permitted.
Menus are available below so you may begin planning your order. By 6 December 2021 the contact who submitted the Ancillary Request will receive notification by email of the finalized day, time, and location of your event along with instructions on how to submit food and beverage orders.
