Academy 2021 COVID-19 Policies

ASHRM Academy 2021 Code of Conduct

By registering, participants agree to follow COVID-19 safety protocols throughout the ASHRM Academy event. Protocols may include but are not limited to completing a health screening questionnaire via a third party, wearing a mask at all times with the exception if you are actively eating or drinking, keeping a 6 feet physical distance from other attendees, frequent hand sanitization. ASHRM reserves the right to cancel the registration for those who refuse to follow identified protocols.

In an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19, we do ask you to not attend the in-person events if you are not feeling well; have had close contact with an individual infected with COVID-19 in the last 14 days; or are currently experiencing fever, cough, shortness of breath or other signs of illness.


COVID-19 Safety Protocols

ASHRM’s top priority is to keep you safe while you pursue your professional education. ASHRM Academy’s COVID-19 safety protocols follow recommendations from the CDC and prominent public health authorities and have been developed in collaboration with The Whitley, following the HEI Hotels + Resorts COVID-19 Preparedness Plan.
