General Convention FAQ's
The 2021 ASEEES Convention in New Orleans is scheduled for November 18 - 21, 2021. Will the virtual component of the Convention happen concurrently?
No, the virtual component is scheduled for Dec 2-3, 2021.
Can someone present at both the virtual and in-person conventions?
Yes, it is possible to participate both in-person and virtually. However, the two-session limit, as outlined in the rules for convention participants, still applies. Registration should be purchased for the In-Person+Virtual Convention rate.
Will there be an option to move our session to the virtual format if we cannot attend the in-person convention?
Yes, we understand that the choice to participate virtually or in-person will involve many evolving variables. We will do our best to accommodate requests as necessary. Complete this In-Person or Virtual Participation Change Request form as soon as you are sure of your change.
Can a presenter participate virtually (via a platform such as Zoom) during the in-person convention if they cannot be physically present?
No. At this time, we are unable to provide the option of “hybrid” participation. The staffing required to accommodate the “beaming-in” approach is expensive and often disruptive to other session participants.
IS COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOL IN PLACE IN MEETING SPACED AT THE HOTEL?
Hilton developed EventReady with CleanStay, a global meetings and events program designed to create event experiences that are clean, flexible, safe and socially responsible. The hotel maintains strict compliance with city and state safety recommendations. For more information on these measures: click here Hilton CleanStay
ASEEES has adjusted our convention schedule to allow for 30 minutes of thorough meeting room cleaning between sessions. Seating in meeting rooms will comply with 6 foot social distancing until further notice. Large social gatherings will be limited. For more information: CleanStay and EventReady Slides.pdf
GIVEN THE EVOLVING MEETING RESTRICTIONS RELATED TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, HOW WILL ASEEES EVENTS OUTSIDE OF PANELS, ROUNDTABLES AND LIGHTNING ROUNDS BE CONDUCTED?
Social gatherings during the Convention, such as the Opening Reception, Book Awards and general receptions will adhere to the catering and hotel mandatory protocols for safety.
How will affiliate group meetings take place?
Affiliate groups are entitled to one meeting slot/room per convention. You may choose to hold a virtual meeting or an in-person meeting during the convention. Virtual participation will be limited to those who are registered to attend the convention.
Will the film screenings take place virtually or in-person?
Most screenings will take place in-person but some may also be available on the virtual platform.
WILL 2021 CONVENTION SESSIONS BE RECORDED?
The Virtual convention will provide the option for panels, roundtables and lightning rounds to record their session. All sessions recorded during the virtual convention must be stored on the Zoom platform “cloud”. Recordings will be available on the ASEEES convention site for one year. All panel/roundtable/lightning round participants must agree to be recorded. Do NOT save recordings to your own computer. ASEEES cannot be responsible for recordings that are accidentally saved to the session manager’s personal device.
A few of the In-Person plenary convention sessions may be recorded. General sessions will not be recorded.
How can I access the session recordings from the 2020 Virtual Convention?

Those who were registered for the convention can access the videos by logging into the 2020 ASEEES Convention Site with their email address. A link to confirm registration will be sent via email. That link will grant access to the 2020 convention platform. Please note that videos are embedded within the convention schedule and not all sessions were recorded.
