Venue Health and Safety Protocols 

Review the current COVID-19 guidelines from our lead venue, the Greater Tacoma Convention Center, and current practices for health and safety from our partner venue, the Marriott Tacoma Downtown, which are subject to change at any time.

Proactive Precautions

To center those most vulnerable in our community, we strongly encourage attendees to proactively take precautions, including mask-wearing prior to, during, and after the Conference, being up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters, administration of a rapid COVID test in the 24 hours prior to attending the Conference to confirm that you are COVID-negative, and frequent handwashing and hand sanitizing to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other viral illnesses.

No person in any Conference role should attend or stay in attendance if they are currently experiencing any of the symptoms of COVID-19, as identified by the CDC. Although refunds are not available after October 4, 2024, we strongly encourage anyone in this situation to consider transferring their registration to another individual, such as a colleague, who can attend.

Some of these norms were adapted from CompassPoint’s workshop expectations.
