Annual Meeting
New Schedule for the Annual Meeting
Psychiatric News
Volume 45 Number 7 page 8-8

In response to attendees' feedback, APA has made important changes to the annual meeting schedule for 2010 that will save them time and money.

  • The meeting will be held over five days instead of the usual six—ending on Wednesday (May 26) instead of Thursday.

  • The full range of meeting formats (such as symposia, workshops, seminars, and master courses) will begin on Saturday (May 22) and run through the end of Wednesday.

  • In the past, only CME courses and industry-supported symposia were held before the official start of the meeting on Sunday.

  • To better accommodate attendees' evening plans, the Opening Session will begin earlier this year. It will still be held on its usual day—Sunday—but it will begin at 4:30 p.m. instead of 5 p.m.

  • Sessions are being scheduled in topical tracks so that members can focus on their professional areas of interest.

  • To take full advantage of the new program at this year's annual meeting, attendees should arrive in New Orleans by Friday evening, May 21. Here is the on-site registration schedule:

    Friday, May 21—Noon-5 p.m.

    Saturday-Tuesday, May 22-25—7:30 a.m.-4 p.m.

    Wednesday, May 26—7:30 a.m.-2 p.m.
