Covid-19 precautions

While we are very much looking forward to having an in-person conference,
we realize that we are still in a global pandemic and have made some
changes to our normal conference.
 
Masks are being strongly encouraged for those that are not vaccinated,
there will be changes to our typical breakfast and lunch buffets,
there will be increased seat spacing in the educational sessions,
and the trade show floor will be more spread out to encourage social distancing.
 
Attendees will also be able to indicate their contact comfort level on their name tags.
