AACSB's Health and Safety Commitment and Guidelines

AACSB’s top priority is the health and safety of our event attendees and staff. We are working with our partners and vendors to develop protocols that will continue to evolve to reflect the current state of the pandemic response and ensure the safety for everyone in attendance. We will continue to monitor and follow mandates required by federal, state, and local jurisdictions, as well as the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and World Health Organization.

Plan Ahead

  • Get vaccinated: We strongly encourage you to get your vaccine as soon as it is available to you. We recommend that you are fully vaccinated (14 days after your vaccine shot) prior to traveling to the event. 
  • Know your local travel protocols: Please make sure you fully understand your local government travel restrictions and return protocols

Onsite Safety Protocols

  • Masks are optional: While masks are now optional, we will still have some disposable masks for any attendees who may wish to wear one.
  • Hand sanitizing stations provided: We recommend that attendees utilize hand sanitizing as often as possible throughout the event. We also encourage you to wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Enhanced cleaning and sanitization: Meeting rooms will be thoroughly cleaned between each session according to the hotel's comprehensive cleanliness standards. Here is more information on the hotel's Covid-19 Property Details
