If you are not a member of ACNP, please review the below guest policy and the Annual Meeting FAQs for invitation and meeting information. 

Annual Meeting Guest Policy:
ACNP Members, Fellows and Emeritus may only invite a guest to the meeting if the member is also attending the meeting. When we receive information regarding an invited guest, the Executive Office staff will ask the member to attest that he/she will attend the meeting before we will process the guest invitation. An invited guest will be allowed to present a poster if he/she chooses to do so.   

The quickest and most efficient way for members to invite a guest to the Annual Meeting is to send an email to the ACNP Executive Office with the name and email address of your guest along with confirmation of your attendance to the meeting. The Annual Meeting registration materials will then be forwarded to your guest. 

Invitation Banks: 

The General Invitation Bank is fixed with 100 invitations that any member, attending the meeting, may request for someone who is within 10 years of their last training or someone with a first time R award or K award.  Members may use one invitation.  

The Diversity Invitation Bank allows any member, attending the meeting, to offer one invitation to a scientist from an underrepresented minority group including Pacific Islander, African-American, Native American, or Hispanic. Members who request the invitation should vouch for the minority status of the scientist they are inviting.
