Are there any COVID-19 requirements for attending the conference?
For the protection of all attending the 2022 Conference, the Conference Planning Task Force with the support of the NACC Board of Directors has established specific requirements in order to attend the conference. We recognize that the requirements may exclude some members of the NACC from attending the conference in-person. Even considering this, we have determined that the only way that we feel safe to proceed with an in-person Conference would be to minimize the health risks in these ways.
