Health and Safety Protocols

AFCC reserves the right to implement health and safety protocols that are consistent with CDC guidelines. This may include requiring wearing masks except when eating and drinking, along with proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test within 72 hours for all conference participants. Social gatherings planned for smaller spaces (e.g., hospitality suite and receptions for new members, first-time attendees, and international attendees) will be assessed for risk and a final decision will be made closer to the conference dates.
