Please review ASCE's COVID-19 Health & Safety policies in addition to the policies below.
Information Collected by ASCE
Attendees under the age of 18 are prohibited.
Assumption of Risk and Hold Harmless
All ASCE/COPRI events and activities are purely voluntary activities, and attendees are fully responsible for their own conduct and well-being, including, and without limitation, determining their level of fitness to take part in any such event or activity. In participating in any event or activity, attendees shall be deemed to understand and accept all risk of possible physical injury that might occur as a result of such participation. Attendees agree to release and hold harmless ASCE and its affiliates, employees, officers, directors, representatives, and agents from any and all alleged and/or actual liability, claims, actions, lawsuits, damages, or losses, of any kind which arise out of or result from attendance at and participation in the conference.
The dress code for the conference is business casual (i.e. slacks, casual dresses) to business attire (i.e. business suits, neckties). Meeting room temperatures will vary, so wear layered clothing to ensure your personal comfort. We also recommend attendees wear comfortable shoes. Please note that certain events may have specific details on attire, and you should refer to the event for more information.
Automated PDH Tracking
When you arrive at the registration desk to pick up your registration badge and tickets, you will notice that after your name badge you will receive a second badge, which includes your name and a bar code specific to your registration. Before you enter the room for a technical session or a plenary session, you must scan the bar code on your badge to receive PDH credit. The scanner will acknowledge a successful recording of your name for the specific session. We strongly recommend you scan your badge at the beginning of each session to eliminate any challenges and/or lines later.
Please remember, the only way to receive PDH credits is if you scan your bar code badge at the start of each session.
Look for a detailed instruction sheet when you receive your registration materials.
Badge Policy and Ribbons
Your conference registration name badge is your admission to the educational sessions. Tickets are required for the pre- and post-conference events, meals, and special events. Ribbons will be available at the Registration desk. As a safety precaution, please remove your badge when leaving the hotel.
If you have lost your badge, please see an ASCE staff member at the registration desk. There may be a charge to issue a replacement – up to $25. Tickets cannot be replaced. If you are unable to attend an event you have purchased an extra ticket for, you will be able to turn it in to registration desk. Only if ASCE is able to sell your ticket, will you be able to get a refund. Tickets will not be refunded for no shows.
Photo and Video Recording of Sessions
ASCE may take photographs and/or make audio and visual recordings of the event, and participants grant to ASCE the absolute right and permission to use any such photographs or recordings that may be taken during the event for any purpose in its sole discretion.
Photos, video or audio recording(s) of any educational session is strictly prohibited without prior written permission from both ASCE/COPRI and the session presenter(s).
Distribution of Literature or Promotional Information
Distribution of literature, samples, or other promotional material by attendees is prohibited without prior permission by ASCE. Any attendee found to be distributing literature without prior approval may be asked to leave the show. Exhibitors may distribute literature, samples, and materials only within the confines of their rented booth space, except with prior permission from ASCE.
Meeting Room Overcrowding
ASCE will make every effort to schedule popular events in rooms large enough to accommodate anticipated attendance. Because many events are extremely popular, it is wise to select alternative events as you plan your Conference schedule ASCE and the host facilities are REQUIRED to follow local fire regulations and may ask participants in rooms at capacity to choose another event.

In the unlikely event of a cancellation, all registrants will be notified and will receive a refund, if applicable, for technical tours, or ticketed events. Programs and sessions are subject to change, and ASCE reserves the right to substitute a program, session and/or speaker of equal caliber to fulfill the educational requirements
