Candid Photographs:

Photographers will be taking candid photographs of Convocation participants in the hours leading up to and during the ceremony. Some of these photos may be used in future ACP promotional materials.

Wall of Fame:

New Fellows and their families are invited to visit the Wall of Fame, listing new Fellows inducted at Convocation this year. A terrific photo opportunity! The Wall of Fame is located in the lobby outside Hall F1. The Wall of Fame changes every year, so this is the only time these names will appear.

Fees:

There are no fees regarding the Convocation Ceremony.

Deadlines:

Please submit the completed Fellowship Inductee Response Form before April 1, 2022.

Participating in Convocation:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, FACPs who would have been invited to participate in the 2020 and 2021 ceremonies if they had been held in person will be invited through the 2024 Convocation Ceremonies. All Fellows are welcome to be inducted at a future Convocation ceremony upon request and are advised to contact ACP headquarters at least four months prior to the ceremony.
