How can I register?
You can register online.


What if I need to cancel my registration?
Since AIPAC must guarantee and therefore pay for each delegate's participation in advance, cancellations after January 6, 2017, cannot be refunded nor applied to future AIPAC events. Additionally, Policy Conference 2017 registrations are non-transferable.


How do I receive my conference badge?
AIPAC issues all delegates personal conference credentials in the form of a badge and lanyard. Badges are being mailed out to each delegate several weeks prior to Policy Conference 2017.


What is the dress code?
Business attire is appropriate for the entire conference. The Convention Center is very large, so comfortable shoes are a must throughout the conference.


Delegates with Disabilities
We strongly encourage our delegates with limited mobility to rent their own scooters or wheelchairs by calling Scoot Around Rentals at 1-888-441-7575. There will be a small number of wheelchairs and scooters available at the convention center but they are first come, first serve and we cannot guarantee availability.


How do I choose my breakouts/see my schedule?
Policy Conference Agenda Builder, our new and improved session selection website, is your tool to build, save and print your personal schedule for the conference. Watch your inbox for an invitation to build your PC agenda.


What is a lobbying appointment?
A lobbying appointment is your opportunity to meet with your member of Congress and speak to them about issues of concern to the pro-Israel community. Most lobbying appointments will take place on Capitol Hill with either your member of Congress or a congressional staffer.
