Following are guidelines for reporters covering the annual meeting:

1. All media representatives should submit requests for credentials the evening before they plan to attend events, to ensure they can be registered in a timely fashion.

2. MESA provides media credentials only to qualified reporters who are employees of or freelancers on assignment to locally or nationally recognized print or broadcast media outlets with a demonstrated history of reporting on academic issues. MESA will request credentials before issuing convention media credentials.

3. Audiotaping, videotaping, and still photography of MESA annual meeting sessions or programs are not permitted. Occasional exceptions may be made for audiotaping or videotaping short segments and for still photography designed to convey the convention atmosphere. Requests to audiotape, videotape, or photograph any session must be submitted in advance to the media liaison and require the consent of all speakers at a session. If taping or photography is approved, the media liaison must accompany the reporter and crew.

4. Audiotaping, videotaping, and still photography may be permitted in the public areas of the meeting (e.g., hotel lobbies), provided the crew is accompanied by a media office staff person.

Registered media requesting program information or in need of interview assistance may contact Yasmin Hamidi
