As COVID vaccine availability is widespread and the United States is moving toward more normal business operations, NCMS is embracing a cautious approach to reinitiating in-person meetings. Current Center for Disease Control (CDC) and state and local health guidelines will be followed and enforced. However, NCMS reserves the right to update health measures and attendance policies based on evolving health threats and guidance from Federal health agencies and local authorities.

By registering for and attending the 2022 CTMA Partners Meeting, you agree to abide by and engage in certain mandatory health and safety conduct at the event. These protocols are consistent with CDC guidance, state and local health authority directives, and hotel rules.

Vaccination Required

Full vaccination is required to attend the 2022 CTMA Partners Meeting. Proof of vaccination through a third party will be required and instructions will be sent to all registrants before the event.

Individuals are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after the second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.

Face Masks Optional

Following local masking regulations for Virginia Beach, VA, face masks will not be required to be worn during the 2022 CTMA Partners Meeting. However, individuals are welcome to wear masks if they feel more comfortable doing so.
