Any registrant who requires special accommodation or needs assistance to fully participate in the meeting will have the opportunity to indicate this during the registration process and will be contacted by ACMG to determine specific needs (note: dietary restrictions do not qualify as special accommodations).

Recorded content will be available for sale on-site and post meeting at significantly higher prices. Short Courses will be made available for purchase post-meeting.
The Sunshine Act and National Provider Identification Numbers
Under the Physician Payment Sunshine Act (Section 6002 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act), medical device, biologic, and drug companies are required to track all payments and transfers of value (TOV) to U.S. healthcare providers made on or after Jan. 1, 2012. Exhibitors will use NPI information to comply with federal disclosure mandate. To assist 2015 ACMG Annual Meeting exhibitors in complying with the federal mandate, ACMG is requesting that attendees supply their NPI number (if applicable) when registering for the meeting.
ACMG meeting related communications will come via email from ACMG and our meeting partners. In many cases email communication may be “mass or bulk emails” – sent to all registered or potential attendees and/or the email address will be a “pseudonym email” such as firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com and – the email addresses related to abstract submission, firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com – the email addresses that will confirm your registration and payment, or firstname.lastname@example.org - the email address that will confirm hotel reservations.
Bulk emails and “pseudonym email addresses” are often identified by firewalls and spam blockers as “spam.” To assure you receive all ACMG meeting related emails, request your IT department or IS help desk that any email that contains “ACMG” in the address is NOT blocked from transmitting or that the email addresses noted above are automatically accepted. If your email does not go through an institution's email system – but through a server such as Hotmail, Gmail, etc. – you can set filter parameters directly.
