Attendees who require assistance from another individual to participate in Annual Meeting activities should obtain a meeting badge for the assistant, as some areas (especially the Exhibit Hall) are off-limits to non-registrants. These arrangements can be made at no charge by coming to the AAR Member Services desk. It will be helpful to us if you have a statement of medical necessity, especially if the reason for needing an assistant is not obvious. It is expected that assistants getting no-charge meeting badges under these circumstances will be individuals who are not independently interested in the study of religion and theology; colleagues who are simply being helpful to a friend with a disability, but who are also perusing and participating on their own, are expected to register in the normal fashion.
More information on Atlanta accessibility is available at the sites of the Annual Meeting hotels:
Access between the two hotels is now available via a pedestrian bridge connecting the Lobby level of the Hyatt Regency to the Atrium level of the Marriott Marquis.For information on MARTA Accessibility, you can visit www.itsmarta.com/marta-accessibility.aspx.
