Health, Safety, and Conduct Expectations

COVID Policy

In an effort to keep all our attendees, presenters, exhibitors, volunteers, and staff safe, regional events will be run in accordance to local, state, and federal regulations and guidelines related to mass gatherings. AMS encourages attendees to wear masks at our regional events this year.

AMS will continuously monitor best practices from health experts to make decisions that best support the wellbeing of our community.

Authorized Attendees

No person under the age of 18, including infants and toddlers either handheld or in carriers, will be permitted at the Symposium. This policy is in effect to address safety concerns as well as to ensure the professional nature of the event. We love children (clearly!) and thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

If you are a nursing mother who will need onsite accommodations, please contact our conference team at, Subject Line: “Symposium Nursing Accommodations” at least 1 month prior to Symposium. Children, including those who are nursing, are not permitted in workshop/event rooms. An alternate caregiver must be arranged for children at all times apart from when nursing accommodations are in use.
