Fam Trips and Travel Info

What are FAM Trips?

FAMs are familiarization events at venues or service agencies that wish to showcase their services to ACPA members, with the intent that ACPA members will refer clients to use the venue/agency services.

It is understood (by both ACPA and hosting agency) that there are no guarantees of use of these services.

Should FAM participants feel the venue/agency offers services their peers/clients/employers will use, the FAM participants are encourages to refer ACPA members, peers, and clients to use these services.

In summary, FAM’s are an opportunity for word of mouth advertising for the hosting venue/agency.

FAM Trip Code of Conduct

The minute you accept an invitation for a FAM Trip, you automatically become a goodwill ambassador for the ACPA and your employer.  The way you conduct yourself reflects not just on you, but upon the ACPA and the person or company that employs you.  For these reasons the ACPA has created the “ACPA FAM Trip Code of Conduct.”
