Press Pass Request

The American College of Rheumatology (ACR) organizes several events throughout the United States for which the media can apply for a press pass.

ACR/ARHP Annual Meeting Press Registration Policies and Procedures

Press Application Information

To apply for press credentials, you will need to provide the following:

  • Photo identification (such as a driver’s license or passport)
  • Media identification certifying that you are a working member of the print, broadcast, or online media (such as a business card, accredited press pass, or an official media outlet-issued credential)
  • An assignment letter from an editor, assistant editor, assignment editor, or designated organization official confirming that the journalist will be representing the organization and explaining the intended use of the resulting coverage (bloggers may submit an overview of their blog and explain the intended use of the resulting coverage in lieu of an assignment letter)
  • Bylined, published work samples, preferably related to the practice of rheumatology (scientific research studies, textbooks, textbook chapters, brochure/promotional copy, etc. do not qualify as news coverage)

NOTE: Journalists who received credentials for the previous year’s meeting must submit bylined coverage from the meeting in lieu of general work samples. (If meeting coverage is behind a paywall, a username and password to access the coverage must be provided. This information will only be used to verify eligibility and confirm post-meeting coverage.)

 

After you submit the form, the page will refresh. Please scroll down to see the confirmation message.
