COVID-19 Information Center
As the world continues to make positive strides to end COVID -19, we want to do our part by continuing to aid in the reduction of the spread. We look forward to meeting in Dallas, Texas- safely. We will be implementing a series of policies and procedures to ensure that we keep our attendees and staff safe while still providing a fun and engaging conference experience where our community can reconnect after a long period of separation.
We are monitoring the ongoing developments and policy changes and will follow policies and safety precautions in place at the time of the conference. We are working closely with our meeting planning professionals, the Omni Dallas, and our partners/vendors to ensure we provide a safe environment that meets local, state, building, and CDC procedures.
As we look ahead to gathering in person, we ask that you take our safety pledge by adhering to the five golden rules:
- Get a vaccination
- Don’t travel if you are sick
- Wear a Mask
- Wash Your Hands
- Practice Social Distance
As we get closer to the date of the conference, we will provide updates. Check back to this page for any new information or updates. In the meantime, feel free to reach out to our staff members or conference planning committee with any questions you might have.
