The American Association of Heart Failure Nurses (AAHFN) welcomes press coverage of its Annual Meeting and its official publication, The Connection . Representatives from recognized news organizations or publications are cordially invited to attend sessions at the Annual Meeting and to receive complimentary copies of The Connection for the express purpose of gathering news and information to produce editorial coverage of the meetings and/or publication.
The following policies and guidelines have been prepared for news media interested in covering the Annual Meeting as well as those interested in The Connection . If you have any questions regarding policies or available resources, please contact Karyn Lockshine, AAHFN's Executive Director via email at firstname.lastname@example.org . We look forward to working with you.
Complimentary registration is available to representatives of print, electronic and Internet general interest media and trade media (collectively known as press).

Reporters, producers, and editors agree to the embargoes and release times stated on the news releases and other materials, including electronic editions of The Connection . Failure to abide by the embargoes will result in suspension of credentials, which will affect attendance at future conferences and ability to receive advance press materials.
Information regarding media registrants is proprietary. AAHFN does not make available press registration lists.
Media events or news briefings other than those organized by AAHFN are not permitted in any Annual Meeting areas without prior consent from AAHFN's communications manager.
AAHFN reserves the right to bar from future meetings any journalist who deliberately promotes the viewpoint of one company or institution, or who attempts to solicit manuscripts, advertising, or subscriptions from registrants or exhibitors.
