NMAC and its program partners encourage freedom of expression as an essential principle in the response to HIV. Activism has always played a central role in our movement and we encourage debate and dialogue as key elements of USCHA, including the right to peacefully protest. However, NMAC and its partners oppose the disruption of conference sessions, satellite meetings or exhibitions that results in the inability of attendees to take full advantage of the learning and educational opportunities available at the conference. We ask that everyone respect the mission, spirit and integrity of USCHA and use their best judgment if/when organizing demonstrations. For those who will be organizing demonstrations or protests during any part of the conference, including the Exhibit Hall, we ask that you kindly inform Conferences staff (firstname.lastname@example.org) and designate a contact person for your demonstration. We also ask that you:
NMAC reserves the right to determine whether a demonstration is disruptive and/or detrimental to the mission and values of USCHA. We appreciate the need for freedom of expression. We also want to balance this need with the needs of our constituents, sponsors, and exhibitors to ensure that USCHA is productive for everyone. As such, we require all attendees to follow these policies. If you do not, you may be escorted out of the conference and banned from attending future NMAC sponsored conferences.
Affinity Sessions are impromptu meetings of conference attendees who want to discuss a particular subject.

The Puerto Rico host Committee is in charge of the volunteer process for USCHA.
