The health & safety of our attendees are our top priorities, and we’re working closely with the Seattle Convention Center and our host hotels to make sure the Annual Meeting is as safe a space as it can be from a public health perspective. We are counting on everyone taking care with one another and taking care of themselves.
Here’s what we have planned to help keep our in-person attendees, our volunteers, and AAA staff safe at the Annual Meeting.
Attendees must abide by the following requirements:
- The Seattle Convention Center first earned its Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC) STAR™ accreditation in 2021, and was reaccredited in 2022. This is the gold standard of safe public venues. It means the health and safety protocols the Seattle Convention Center puts in place have been independently validated by a qualified third party based on procedures for cleaning and disinfection, air handling equipment, and properly trained personnel.
- Attendees must be fully vaccinated with one booster dose, all completed at least 14 days prior to arrival. For international attendees, the documented vaccine/booster must be among those approved for emergency use by the World Health Organization. Exemptions will only be considered for attendees with a note from a medical doctor advising against vaccination. We ask you to upload your vaccination before you arrive in Seattle, as you will not be able to pick up your badge until you complete your vaccination verification. Please scan the QR code below and follow those instructions for upload from your mobile device.
- Meeting badges will be required to access AAA event space. Please wear your badge at all times. This means that only attendees who are registered for the meeting will be allowed in our space, and we will know that everyone there has had their vaccine status documented.
- We encourage people to wear masks when in indoor AAA event space. We will have an ample supply of KN95 masks available at the registration desk for those who need them. We will also have a supply of rapid antigen COVID tests available for people who are concerned they might have been exposed to the coronavirus in transit to or at the meeting.
