Additional Programming Information

Need to make a change to speakers, panelists or presentation content? It’s important to run it by us. Changes must be approved by IAPP to uphold the quality of our program and keep our publications current. Please contact Julia Kirchmer immediately if you need to make adjustments.

A member from press associations affiliated with the IAPP event may report on presenters’ sessions, and may even record sessions, and will be entitled to interview presenters. The IAPP may also record presenters’ images and voices for possible use in IAPP materials. Recordings may be edited, copied, exhibited, published or distributed. (Special exceptions may be made for speakers whose employers prohibit such recordings but only upon approval of the IAPP.)

Please review the Code of Conduct at IAPP events.
