Protecting the health and safety of attendees, sponsors, exhibitors and staff is paramount which is why the ASDA Board of Trustees voted to implement the following. All parties in attendance at the Summit must:

  • Agree to present printed COVID-19 vaccine card as physical proof of vaccination (defined as two weeks after receiving the second dose of a two-dose vaccine or two weeks after receiving the only dose of a single-dose vaccine) or printed copy of a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours (3 days) of the meeting.
  • Agree to wear a face covering, inside the meeting space, with the exception of eating, drinking, presenting, religious beliefs or unless medically unable.
  • Agree not to attend the Summit if you are ill or have been recently exposed to COVID-19.
In addition to the requirements outlined above, all attendees must follow federal, state and local guidelines relating to COVID-19 including, but not limited to, while traveling to the Summit and throughout the event. ASDA will continue to monitor developments and guidelines. Everyone attending the Summit will need to sign an Assumption of the Risk, Waiver of Liability and Code of Conduct Agreement (to be provided upon registration submission).
The Summit is intended to foster interactive, deep-dive learning through focused experiences during our workshops. To maintain a small-group environment, registration will occur in two phases.
