Pandemic Uncertainty

The lack of certainty about the future trajectory of the pandemic makes it difficult to make an informed decision about almost everything.  With this in mind, we have listed some key points to consider as you decide between the in-person registration and the virtual registration:

While masks are currently* not required, we encourage the use of masks for individuals at risk of complications from COVID-19, including older adults and individuals who are immunocompromised or who have pre-existing conditions. If a mask is worn, it should fit well around the nose and mouth. Cloth masks are not recommended unless they are covering a surgical mask underneath.

We will not be offering COVID testing onsite at the conference. If you are traveling internationally, please refer to the CDC Requirements for International Travelers prior to making your arrangements. For everyone flying to Charleston, we suggest purchasing travel insurance in the event your trip is cancelled.

* New mask mandates may be implemented in the future as indicated to protect the health of our community.


A refund will be made upon written request prior to November 5, 2024; however, $100 will be retained for administrative costs. No refunds will be made after November 5, 2024. We reserve the right to cancel the program if necessary. Full registration fees will be refunded for canceled programs. By registering for this conference, you agree to this cancellation policy.
