At this stage of the pandemic, it is SIIA’s view that everyone is sufficiently educated to make their own decisions regarding event attendance and health risk mitigation considerations.

In this regard, we are advising that there will be no vaccine requirement to attend, nor will there be a mask mandate. Of course, attendees are certainly welcome to wear masks if they would like to do so.

That said, if you have any reason to believe you are COVID positive or have been exposed, please do not come. Please also carefully consider your attendance plans if you have not been fully vaccinated or do not have natural immunity from a previous infection. SIIA’s published cancellation/substitution policy shall apply regardless of circumstance.

We continue to closely monitor local government mandates, Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines, and public health advancements.

The Attendee List will be available on the conference website starting July 6th, with updated versions being published every few weeks.
