2022 NASFAA Leadership & Legislative Conference & Expo and FAAC Forum Registration

Registration for this event is now closed.

In an attempt to ensure a safe and healthy environment for conference attendees, reduce the spread of COVID-19, and be in compliance with all current and possible future federal and local requirements, all attendees at NASFAA's 2022 Leadership & Legislative Conference & Expo in Washington, D.C. must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to attend. This is not meant as an association position on universal vaccine mandates, but rather a hedge against the reality of ongoing and rapidly changing local and federal requirements that could impede us from having any in-person event. Attendees should be prepared to show proof of vaccination at the event in the form of a vaccination card issued by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The District of Columbia has announced that conference center meeting facilities — as well as most restaurants and other businesses — will require all patrons aged 12 or older to show proof that they are vaccinated before entering. While details are still being worked out, the safest course of action is to plan to bring your physical CDC-issued vaccination card with you to the conference. In addition, D.C. has instituted an indoor mask mandate, which will be in effect during our conference. NASFAA staff are also fully vaccinated. You may read below about additional safety measures we will be taking.

Please note: If you are registering on someone else's behalf, you will need to know their vaccination status in order to register them, as they will be required to show proof of vaccination on-site if requested.

The Monday night bus tour is available only to FAAC Forum participants and is included with the cost of registration. 

In light of the COVID pandemic, bus tour tickets are limited this year only to registered conference attendees. Please be aware, though all conference attendees will have affirmed previously that they have been fully vaccinated, the tour bus company does not require its drivers to be vaccinated. Per the bus company, all drivers and passengers are required to wear masks while on the bus.

Additional COVID-19 Protocols and Safety Measures

  • Conference rooms will be arranged to allow for more social distancing between seats.
  • Plated food will not be offered. VISA gift cards will be provided to purchase lunch nearby.
  • To limit communal food and drink offerings, upon checking in at the conference, each attendee will be given two $10 gift cards for local coffee shops that can be used for a light breakfast Monday and Tuesday. (See our list of nearby coffee shops & eateries) NASFAA will provide beverage breaks in the morning and snack breaks in the afternoon in the Exhibit Area for all participants.
  • Upon checking in on-site at the registration desk, attendees will be able to select a button to pin to their conference lanyard (red, yellow, or green) to indicate their comfort level with socializing, with green indicating they are comfortable with normal contact and close conversations, yellow indicating their preference for minimal contact (think fist bumps versus hugs or handshakes), and red indicating their preference that other attendees maintain a distance of six-feet-away, as possible.
