COVID-19 Protocols for the 2023 AAHHE Conference

COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement to attend the 2023 AAHHE National Conference (in person)

  • As we prepare to gather for the national conference, the AAHHE Board is mindful of the current spread of COVID-19 variants and, in order to promote a healthier and safer meeting environment, has decided that all conference presenters, attendees, AAHHE staff, board members, and onsite vendors will be required to provide proof of being fully vaccinated in order to attend the conference. The proof must be provided by February 24th, 2023 via CrowdPass, a third-party organization. More info on CrowdPass below. 
  • AAHHE is following CDC guidelines. The CDC considers an individual up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines when you have received all doses in the primary series (two-dose vaccines series, Pfizer or Moderna or single-dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine) and all boosters recommended for you, when eligible. If you have registered to attend the conference in person and are unable to meet this requirement, we encourage you to change your registration to attend virtually. If you do not want to attend virtually, AAHHE will provide a refund to you. For conference presenters, please note that you’re still required to have at least one person of your team present in-person at the conference. 

Self-Health Assessment: All CSN personnel and guests should conduct a health self-assessment prior to coming to campus. Prior to coming to campus, all AAHHE conference attendees will be asked to fill out a questionnaire via CrowdPass to verify vaccination information and answer questions related to the health assessment to ensure all attendees remain safe and healthy during the event. The questionnaire should be completed by February 24, 2023. Signage will also be posted at building entrances outlining protocols and instructions.

Note: Individuals who have answered ‘yes’ to any of the health-assessment questions are recommended to attend the conference virtually.

Face Coverings: Face coverings are no longer required inside CSN buildings and campuses. Faculty, staff, students, and visitors retain the option of personally deciding to wear a face covering while on CSN property. AAHHE will provide masks to anyone who requests one.  AAHHE highly recommends that all conference participants wear face coverings while indoors.

CrowdPass: We ask you to please complete your verification of vaccination. Please click the button below to proceed and use your email account to create your CrowdPass account. You will need your vaccination card on hand (or a copy/photo of it saved on your computer) so you can reference the information on it and then take or upload a picture. Accepted file formats for your upload are .png, .jpg, .jpeg, or .pdf.

LINK TO COMPLETE THE HEALTH FORM WILL BE FORTHCOMING

We strongly recommend that you complete your verification no later than February 24th, 2023. CrowdPass follows a thorough two-step verification process which may take up to 24 hours during busy times. Most verifications are completed within an hour or two, but please be patient if you do not receive your confirmation until the next day.

We appreciate your cooperation. AAHHE reserves the right to adjust the above Covid-19 policy as per updated CDC or institutional guidelines.

Please do not hesitate to contact AAHHE at [email protected] if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for your cooperation. We look forward to seeing you in Nevada!
