Health and Safety

The safety and wellbeing of our members, exhibitors, and staff are of the utmost importance to us. Please check back regularly for updates on health and safety protocols as more information becomes available. 

In order to keep everyone as safe and healthy as can be, NASFAA is aiming to reduce the number of in-person conference attendees to roughly one-third of the number from previous conferences. This will allow conferees to put greater distance between themselves and others at conference sessions, in the exhibit hall, and as they move about the conference. NASFAA will continually evaluate registration rates, in conjunction with the considerations for events and gatherings from the Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC) and the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, to ensure event safety capacity thresholds.

Event organizers, venues, and attendees all have a role to play in keeping one another safe. In registering for the NASFAA 2021 on-site conference, you are committing to following the steps outlined in NASFAA's Event Conduct Policy to help mitigate risk before, during, and after the event.

At this time, we are still working on protocols for on-site registration at the Gaylord. Please check back for updates. 

Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center Precautions

Home to the NASFAA 2021 national conference, the Gaylord has instituted a multi-pronged approach designed to meet the health and safety challenges presented by COVID-19. Their "Commitment to Clean" approach includes, among other things: deeper, more frequent cleaning; physical distancing practices; contactless service; and food safety protocols. Please note, per the hotel’s policy, face coverings are required in all indoor public areas.
