Although attendees should recognize there is risk involved in attending in-person events, ACC, along with our venue and other vendor partners, has adopted preventative measures to reduce the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus at our in-person programs in accordance with guidance provided by the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The health and safety of all attendees is our top priority. 

Our duty of care is a living document. We recommend you check this webpage regularly as we will update it as the CDC and/or state or local public health authorities’ guidance is updated or changed.
