Media Registration

Registration entitles journalists and public information officers (PIOs) from geoscience and other related organizations to access to all scientific sessions and the exhibition area, as well as to the Newsroom and events specifically for media representatives.

Eligibility for media registration is as follows, all of whom have equal access:

  • Working press representing bona fide news media with a press card, letter, or business card from the publication.
  • Freelance science writers, presenting a current membership card from NASW, ISWA, regional affiliates of NASW, or evidence of work pertaining to science published in 2001 or 2002.
  • PIOs of scientific societies, educational institutions and government agencies.

GSA reserves the right to request evidence of recent work from any applicant for complimentary registration. Complimentary registration also presupposes an intent on the part of applicants to publish stories from the meeting.

Journalists and PIOs must pay for any short courses or field trips in which they wish to participate.

Representatives of the business side of news media, publishing houses, and for-profit corporations must register at the main registration desk and pay the appropriate fees.

Contact Ann Cairns, GSA Director of Communications, for additional information and assistance.

Advance registration is now closed, but you can still register on site when you arrive in Seattle.

Come to the Annual Meeting Newsroom (Room 213 at the Convention Center) to register on site.
