COVID 19-Update (as of September 29, 2021):
We continue to monitor COVID-related restrictions. In addition to in-person sessions, we will offer convention education sessions virtually. The hybrid offering will allow those more comfortable attending virtually to do so. Virtual option (Live stream via Zoom) will be available for the general sessions on November 10 and 11, 2021. We are currently working on a recording option for the November 9 exhibitor education sessions for those who participate in the convention virtually. An indoor mask mandate remains in effect in New Orleans. Everyone, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a mask indoors. The city of New Orleans entered Modified Phase 3 on August 16, 2021. Modified Phase 3 includes proof of at least one dose of an approved COVID vaccine or negative PCR test within 72 hours to access restaurants and hotel ballrooms among other places.
