We will continue to follow updated CDC guidance as conditions evolve up until the time of the meeting, as well as any additional requirements set by the conference hotel and the local government. We hope that all attendees coming to Baltimore will be vaccinated by the time they arrive. We plan to encourage mask wearing for everyone who wishes to do so, and we will have masks available at the registration desk. We will post updates on the website.
