Conference Safety & Community Pledge – Updated 8/16/2021


NAMD will be providing all the necessary safety protocols on-site, and we ask that all attendees adhere to the following community guidelines.

  1. Vaccinations

All attendees, staff, and vendors will be required to be fully vaccinated. Proof of vaccination will be required.  Additional details on the proof of vaccination process will be shared in the coming weeks.

  1. Masks & Social Distancing

Masks will be required throughout the NAMD conference space.

On July 27, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued updated guidance advising that the vast majority of COVID-19 transmissions take place between unvaccinated individuals, and confirming vaccines continue to do an exceptional job of combating the spread of the virus. Based on updated information, in areas with substantial and high transmission, the CDC now recommends fully vaccinated people wear masks in public, indoor settings to help prevent the spread of the Delta variant and help protect others. Further, the CDC recommends community leaders encourage vaccination and universal masking to prevent further outbreaks in areas of substantial and high transmission.

  1. Respect

We ask that all attendees recognize that each attendee will have a different level of comfort with attending a large gathering and ask that you respect their preferences regarding personal space. Color-coded individual display items will be available for everyone to know the attendees’ personal comfort level at a glance.

If you are unable to attend for any reason, or if you are uncomfortable with the community guidelines that we have outlined, NAMD will once again be hosting an immersive virtual platform that will allow sponsors and attendees to engage with each other as effectively as we can.

Our goal is to host a safe and meaningful conference. We recognize that the situation and applicable guidance may continue to evolve through the NAMD event. Please check back frequently for future updates.
