Important information regarding the conference and COVID

The conference is scheduled as an in-person event. Should we need to cancel the event due to COVID, you will receive a full refund.

Currently, some of the venues scheduled to host conference activities still have mask policies and vaccine mandates in place. For that reason, all attendees must be current on their vaccination and boosters by the time they attend the conference and must be willing to wear mask if required to do so. Attendees will need to attest to their vaccination status during the registration process and this information will be shared with the University of Massachusetts Boston to ensure compliance with their vaccination requirements.
