PAA 2019 Registration Info for Furloughed Federal Employees

January 14th is the deadline for presenters to confirm their participation in PAA 2019. If you are a federal employee, it may be impossible to meet this deadline as the federal government shutdown is still in effect for many agencies. If this situation applies to you, you have many options.

Option 1: Confirm your attendance, register later
Send an email to paa2019@popassoc.org to let us know that you are planning to attend. We will hold your spot as the shutdown continues. This is the best option if you’re not certain that you will be granted permission to attend.

Option 2: Confirm your attendance, register now
Should the shutdown continue past January 31st, federal employees will miss the early-bird registration deadline. PAA staff can process your registration and email an invoice to you for later payment. This is the best option if you are completely certain that you will be granted permission to attend. Send an email to info@popassoc.org with the subject line “Furloughed Employee Registration Request”

Note to U.S. Census Employees: PAA has been given a list of U.S. Census Bureau employees that are likely to attend PAA 2019 and we will register those on the list.

We know that some agencies no longer have access to their emails, so please spread this information to colleagues in your network as appropriate.
