Previous accreditation to CPAC events does not guarantee the issuance of media or blogger credentials for CPAC St. Louis.

The ACU, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to withhold press credentials from members of the news media, limit the number of credentials assigned to any news organization, and revoke credentials from members of the news media before or during the event for any reason.
