Space for Special FunctionsThe AACR will consider requests for space for special functions or receptions in the official AACR Annual Meeting hotels. These requests will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis. Any corporation that wishes to entertain during the Annual Meeting must be an exhibitor at the meeting. Space request forms are included in the Exhibitor Services Manual.
Assistance for Physically Challenged RegistrantsThe AACR Annual Meeting is accessible to all attendees. Registrants with special requirements for transportation, hotel accommodations, or other facilities connected with the meeting should notify the AACR in advance by checking the appropriate box when registering and providing the necessary details or by emailing Kelsey Kliwinski (firstname.lastname@example.org). In addition, a list of organizations in Chicago, Illinois, that offer special equipment or services for the physically challenged will be posted in Jan. 2018.
The AACR will provide professional child care services through KiddieCorp for infants and children ages 6 months to 12 years during the Annual Meeting. As a convenience for registrants, the AACR subsidizes the cost of this service, which is $12.00 per hour for each child (a two-hour minimum is required). Snacks and beverages are included in the fee, but meals must be provided by parents. Medication (including sunscreen) will NOT be administered by KiddieCorp. To ensure a safe and fun-filled environment, any child who is ill will not be admitted to the children’s program. Advance registration is essential because space is limited. Onsite registration will be permitted as space allows. The deadline for advance registration is
March 16, 2018. Special arrangements
may also be made for infants under 6 months old by contacting Leah Burton (email@example.com).
