Annual Meeting health and safety protocol


The Board of Trustees recently adopted the health and safety protocol that will be in place for the meeting. Please be aware that this protocol is the minimum requirement while noting that your Board continues to monitor the environment and may implement more stringent requirements as the meeting approaches.

General attendee and guest protocol

  1. Attendees are strongly encouraged to be up to date with their COVID-19 vaccinations per CDC guidelines as of Feb. 27, 2023. This means having completed a COVID-19 vaccine primary series and received the most recent booster dose recommended by the CDC and as authorized or approved by the Food and Drug Administration, or for international guests, the World Health Organization.
  2. Attendees will be required to attest during registration that they will test for COVID-19 if exhibiting any symptoms prior to the departure for the annual meeting, while attending the meeting, and/or following their return home after the meeting. Attendees should not participate in the meeting if, at any point, they test positive before or during the annual meeting.
  3. CDC recommendations or requirements of Chicago and Illinois in effect at the time of the meeting will be enacted and enforced.
  4. Masks are welcome but not required. Anyone who wishes to wear a mask is welcome to do so and their decision should be respected.

This health and safety protocol applies to all attendees, including section members, delegates, alternate delegates and all guests. Attendees should check this page for any changes to this protocol.

Protocol for children in Camp AMA

The Board of Trustees has implemented health and safety requirements for children participating in Camp AMA. This protocol was developed in consultation with a group of parents who plan to use Camp AMA for their children.

  1. Any child with a fever or exhibiting other symptoms of illness should not participate in Camp AMA. Children who become ill during the day must be picked up by their parent(s) upon notification.
  2. Parents are strongly encouraged to have their children up to date on vaccination per CDC guidelines.
  3. While masking is not currently required, parents of all children over age 2 will be expected to supply a mask should circumstances require.
  4. Parents are encouraged to perform a COVID-19 test on children over the age of 2 within  24 hours of attending Camp AMA. A negative COVID-19 test is required to return to Camp AMA should the child have symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or receive a diagnosis of COVID-19.
