We will implement the following guidelines for the 2022 In-Person Technology Exploration Conference (TEC):
ASAE’s Meeting & Events Entry Policy – Fall 2022
Effective September 15, 2022, ASAE will no longer require proof of vaccination status or a negative test result to attend an ASAE in-person meeting or event. Mask-wearing at ASAE meetings and events is encouraged but will be optional.
Instead, ASAE expects attendees to take responsibility themselves for following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on measures to reduce infection from COVID-19 and to protect against severe complications. ASAE urges all members to follow the CDC’s recommendation that everyone over age 12 receive the updated bivalent vaccine as soon as they are eligible to do so (e.g., 2 months past their last shot). For more information, please review the guidelines at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/stay-up-to-date.html. Attendees who are not up-to-date on vaccinations are asked to take an at-home COVID-19 rapid antigen test before traveling to any ASAE meeting and should not attend if they test positive or have symptoms of COVID-19. ASAE will not be requiring proof of these measures, however, but calls on the ASAE community to act responsibly and with consideration for the health and safety of others.
ASAE cannot be held liable for COVID-19 cases arising because of event attendance and will continue to require all attendees to sign a Waiver and Acknowledgment of Personal Responsibility (2022 TEC In-Person Waiver and Acknowledgement Form), upon registering for any ASAE in-person meeting or event.
ASAE’s Meetings & Events Entry Policy is subject to change based on COVID-19 community levels and any updated guidance from CDC and/or federal or state officials in localities hosting an ASAE in-person meeting or event. Guidance on COVID-19 is continually updated, and ASAE appreciates the understanding of its stakeholders as we seek to provide valuable, timely face-to-face programming while prioritizing the health and safety of attendees.
