The safety of our guests in light of the current COVID-19 trends is of our utmost concern. While we are excited to see everyone in person, we want to take serious precautions to protect all of our guests from the increasing spread of this disease. We ask that everyone adheres to the following requirements while attending the Annual Meeting: 

– Stay home if you have tested positive for COVID-19, are waiting for COVID-19 test results, have COVID-19 symptoms, or if you have had close contact with a person who has tested positive for or who has symptoms of COVID-19. If this is the case, contact us at the Chamber to discuss seat refund opportunities. 
– Attendees will be required to wear well-fitting masks that fit completely over your nose and mouth at all times outside of actively eating and/or drinking while seated at your table. Persons with a disability who cannot wear a mask, or cannot safely wear a mask, will be exempt from this requirement. 
 Hand sanitizer will be provided for each attendee at their seat. We encourage you to use it before and after eating and/or handling your mask. 
 Staff will be serving food through the buffet lines, and beverages will be provided on the table in lue of a beverage station. 
– While networking is one of our favorite parts of the Annual Meeting, we ask that you keep a safe distance from others as much as possible and refrain from traditional physical greetings, such as handshakes or hugs
