Commitment to Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility

To support a full creative life for all, we at Americans for the Arts commit to championing policies and practices of cultural equity that empower a just, inclusive, and equitable nation. In that spirit, we are committed to making the NAMP Conference as equitable and inclusive an event as possible.

Attendees needing accommodations, including wheelchair access, hearing and visual aids, dietary needs, etc., should indicate those needs on the registration form or may contact us at

We ask that you make us aware of your needs as early as possible. 

In addition, we have enacted improved ways for all to fully participate:
  • To provide access and assistance for participant costs, we offer a variety of scholarship opportunities.
  • We also live webcast and archive our keynote presentations for free on our YouTube channel for those unable to attend.
  • New this year, Americans for the Arts will live caption all our keynote presentations and provide transcripts (when able) of the keynotes after the event.
  • Our Conference hotel is ADA-accessible, as is the off-site opening reception.
  • We also require all panelists and audience participants to use microphones during sessions for ease of hearing.
  • Americans for the Arts works to ensure that requests for accommodation are met to provide an accessible Conference for all.

Government Purchase Order Policy

If you are using a government-issued purchase order to pay your registration fee, and that purchase order has not been paid at the time of arrival onsite, you will need to secure the registration with a credit card before your registration materials will be released to you. We will place a hold on that credit card for the fee until the purchase order has been paid. If the purchase order is not paid within 30 days of the Conference, we will charge the credit card on file.

Guest Tickets

Individuals interested in bringing a guest to conference-related special events (e.g., Opening Reception, Keynote Sessions) may do so by purchasing a guest ticket. Guests may attend multiple special events with ticket purchase, but purchase does not include conference educational sessions. Only one guest per conference registrant.
