This program will be formatted as a two-day virtual program with an in-person add on for those ready to connect in person with additional breakout sessions and a networking event.
Virtual Program Format
How It Works
- Once you register, you'll begin to receive information to prepare for the live virtual event.
- Prior to the live event, participants will receive an email with instructions on how to log in on the day the program starts. You will also receive a link to the full set of program materials.
- We are currently working on the program schedule. During some time slots, participants will decide between 2-3 live sessions. Watching sessions live will give you the opportunity to be an active participant in live question and answer portion of the presentations. Get your questions answered, chat, and collaborate with other participants and speakers.
- Miss any sessions? No problem, you can watch them on demand later.
- Participants will be able earn continuing education credits for, not only the live sessions attended, but for any on-demand sessions.
Benefits of the Virtual Program
- Speakers are pre-recorded so speakers can participate in the text chat during the session, driving conversation forward and allowing for speakers to answer questions and clarify points throughout their session.
- Access to all the sessions on demand for viewing later on your own time, with continuing education credits available for both live and on demand.
In-Person Program Format
How It Works
- We will offer 8 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 and are working with the hotel to ensure your health and safety as we transition back to in-person programming.
- All attendees, who register for the in-person component of the program, will be required to commit to our Duty of Care (see below) agreeing to follow the protocols we establish and monitor their own health for the health and safety of all.
- On September 30, to minimize crowding, we are offering extended time for registration. We have adopted a new onsite registration system by providing seamless, touchless 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 breaktime.
- 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.
Benefits of the In-Person Program
- After a year of virtual programming, you will finally be able to step out from behind your computer and network face-to-face with other health law professionals.
- Attend interactive breakout sessions that will not be offered as part of the virtual program, enriching your learning and engagement.
Duty of Care
AHLA considers the health and safety of all those onsite at in-person programs our top priority. During these challenging times, AHLA is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all of our in-person programs participants and staff. Although attendees should recognize that there is risk involved in attending, AHLA has adopted preventative measures to reduce the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus at our in-person programs in accordance with guidance provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and our partnering hotels. AHLA staff have been trained, and will continue to train, in the knowledge necessary to monitor, enforce, and handle compliance with safety protocols and procedures.
Our Duty of Care is a living document that will continue to evolve, incorporating innovative features that will further enhance the onsite experience and safety for everyone in attendance. We will also update this document as the CDC and/or state or local public health authorities’ guidance is updated or changed.
AHLA has adopted a new onsite registration system by providing seamless, touchless check-in, onsite badge printing, and safety supplies to all attendees to use while in attendance.
- Attendees will be given a personal QR code to use for registration check-in.
- AHLA will provide plenty of check-in kiosks arranged so that attendees can be socially distanced, appropriate signage, and extra time during the program to check in to keep crowds to a minimum.
- Safety supplies will be provided to each attendee, including a mask, individual hand sanitizer, wipes, a pen, and a safety information card for use during the program.
In Partnership with our Conference Hotels, We Will Provide:
- Responsible food and beverage options

Additional Safety Procedures

- Extended break times built into the schedule for attendees to network, move in and out of ballrooms, and personal time. Our goal is to reduce crowding near ballroom entrances, restrooms, and elevators.
