Health Considerations

32ND INTERNATIONAL ACCT
CONFERENCE & EXPO – CLEVELAND

ACCT MEETINGS & EVENT GUIDELINES

ACCT intends to proceed with hosting our 32nd Annual International ACCT Conference and Expo February 10-13, 2022, in Cleveland, OH. We will continue to monitor local, state, and federal regulations related to group gatherings and will adjust when and where necessary.

ACCT is focused on a multilayered approach to mitigating the risk of COVID-19 and related illnesses at all ACCT in-person events. 

Please reference these helpful resources in preparation for the event:

CONFERENCE & ACCT MEETING ATTENDEES

ATTENDEE WAIVER

All conference attendees will be required to read and sign the ACCT Attendee Release of Liability Agreement waiver. In the document attendees will, among other things, be asked to acknowledge that, notwithstanding any representations to the contrary, from any source, attendees at the conference will be exposed to certain risks, including COVID-19, its variants, and other viruses. No one will be admitted without a signed waiver. This waiver will be required for the conference as well as any in-conjunction with events (i.e. pre-conference sessions, training courses, meetings, symposiums etc.).

If you intend to show proof of a negative test for entry please hold off on signing the waiver as the option to upload that file will not be active until right before our first team members arrival in Cleveland (February 4th,2022). The 72 hour window for the proof of a negative test must be within the timeframe of when you arrive at the registration desk to retrieve your badge.

If you are providing proof of vaccination you can sign the waiver and upload that information into the system now! Having as many people as possible complete this in advance will help badge pick-up run smoother and shorten lines. 

HOTEL & MEETING SPACE

We are adapting the traditional conference/meeting layouts to include opportunities for physical distancing when possible. Additionally, we will monitor local and state regulations related to group gatherings and adjust when and where necessary to maintain quality conditions.

PRESENTERS

The ACCT BOD has approved for masks to be optional for Presenters ONLY during presentations. Presenters may remove their masks during their presentation IF they can maintain 6ft or more distance from others, including co-presenters.  If they are not able to maintain that distance, they need to remain masked.

COVID RELATED COSTS

Register with confidence. We want you to feel comfortable attending the conference and attend only if you are feeling well. If you need to cancel your registration due to COVID (documentation will be required), we will issue a credit toward a future ACCT conference. We are happy to work with you on registration fees paid to ACCT but cannot refund any out-of-pocket expenses for transportation, lodging, or meals.
