The American Organization for Nursing Leadership (AONL) grants press passes to those contributing writers or freelancers who have the required credentials and who will be writing about the AONL conference. All media personnel must be pre-qualified and pre-registered. A press pass, available for pick-up onsite, will admit working media to the exhibit hall, keynotes and breakout sessions.
Press Pass Requirements
To obtain a press pass to the AONL conference, media delegates must submit one of the following:
Trade and Business Publications/Newspapers
A bylined article written by the applicant and published within six months of the conference, or a letter from the applicant’s editor, on their media’s outlet stationery or received directly via email from the editor's verifiable email address, stating the applicant’s assignment to cover a specific the AONL conference.
Original letter of assignment or copy of the contract from publisher or news organization or an electronic copy received directly via email from the editor's verifiable email address, or two samples of bylined articles published within the last year.
Online Publications/Online News Services
Business card with editorial title plus copies of two bylined articles printed from the Web site or an Internet address so that we may view such articles on-site.
Market Research Staff and Industry Analysts
Business card with editorial/analyst title and copy of white paper, briefing or report published within the last year.
Policies for Press and Media
AONL reserves the right to refuse or rescind a press pass for any reason. However, the primary reasons for such extreme steps would typically be: 1) failure to provide adequate credentials (required pre-registration) or 2) unprofessional conduct by a media delegate during the course of the event. Additionally, AONL reserves the right to modify or waive these requirements at any time but will honor existing press registrations.
A press conference pass includes access to breakout sessions, lunches and social events. Since we incur considerable costs on a press delegate’s behalf, we request a written cancellation notice sent to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 14 business days in advance of the program.
Audio and Video Taping
No individual or entity other than AONL may electronically record or copy any portion of this program for any use without prior written consent from AONL (including recordings from smart phones, iPads and other handheld devices).
Media and Audio Release
Registration and attendance at, or participation in, AONL meetings and other activities constitutes an agreement by the registrant to AONL’s use and distribution (both now and in the future) of the registrant or attendee’s image or voice in photographs, videotapes, electronic reproductions and audiotapes of such events and activities.
Opinions, materials and statements presented at the AONL Conference are not endorsed by, and do not necessarily represent, the views of the association or its members.
