APA boilerplate: "The conference will be held at the New York Marriott Marquis. All program sessions will take place at this hotel.  The complete program, together with advance registration and hotel reservation forms, will appear in the September issue of the APA Proceedings. All those participating in the meeting are expected to register, and to wear their name badges to signify that they have done so. Registration is one of the main sources of the income required to pay for a meeting such as this.  Among other things, registration income pays the salaries of National Office staff members whose work is essential to the meeting.  The staff conducts random checks at the meeting, and those who have not registered are asked to do so immediately.  I would appreciate your conveying to the participants in your session(s) the importance of registering. You may notice that the information about your session does not include the meeting room in which the session is to take place.  As was done at all three Divisional meetings in 2008-9, meeting room information will be given out in a separate brochure at the meeting itself, along with other registration materials.  However, if you have a session on the first evening of the meeting (December 27), the location of your session will also be posted on a bulletin board in the area of the APA registration desks."
