Tips for First Time Attendees

Not sure who’s new?

Easily spot other first-time attendees by the “first-timer” stickers on their badges.

First Timer Tips

  • Create an agenda of sessions you want to attend via the app. Be sure to download the app before arriving.

  • Engage with other attendees via the app. The activity feed is particularly popular with attendees!

  • Pro Tip: If a session is particularly important to you, arrive EARLY! Some rooms will reach capacity quickly and arriving late could mean you won’t get access to the room.

  • Stop by the AAPL Information Area to meet and ask questions to AAPL staff members and volunteers who will provide guidance as you navigate your first AAPL Annual Leadership Conference.

Calling All Our Vets

While we put a lot of work into these initiatives for our first-timers, we still need your help as an AAPL meeting veteran! The best way for you to help is simply to connect.

If you see a first timer, say hello, introduce them to some of your contacts, sit by them in a session, or simply stop by expo hall. Not only will you help the first timers, but you’ll grow your own network and likely make a great new friend.

For over 45 years.

The American Association for Physician Leadership has helped physicians develop their leadership skills through education, career development, thought leadership and community building.

The American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL) changed its name from the American College of Physician Executives (ACPE) in 2014. We may have changed our name, but we are the same organization that has been serving physician leaders since 1975.
