In-Person Program Format

How It Works

  • We will offer in-depth breakout sessions where speakers and attendees can interact and collaborate with each other in-person.
  • We consider the health and safety of all those onsite at in-person programs our top priority. AHLA will follow guidance and requirements issued by the CDC as well as by state and local government.. 
  • All attendees, who register for the in-person program, will be required to commit to our Duty of Care agreeing to follow the protocols we establish and monitor their own health for the health and safety of all. 
  • We have adopted a new onsite registration system by providing seamless check-in, onsite badge printing, and safety supplies to all attendees to use while in attendance.
  • Built-in extended time between sessions for moving from room to room, networking with colleagues, and personal break time.  
  • Socially distanced seating arrangements in breakout rooms, regular cleaning in and around meeting spaces, and appropriate signage/floor decals to reinforce spatial distancing and other safety reminders.
  • All program sessions will be recorded. Video of the presentations, along with the materials will be available to all attendees who register to apply for additional On Demand Continuing Education Credits. Those that cannot attend in-person can purchase the eProgram and apply for Continuing Education Credits. More information on our ePrograms.
  • For questions or more information, please email [email protected]
