The National Council on Aging (NCOA) is taking safety at our event seriously. We have implemented the following measures to promote the health and well-being of attendees and staff. All attendees are expected to consider the well-being of themselves and those around them. This includes:
While we do not intend to require masks or proof of vaccination, we do expect all attendees to make a personal commitment to ensuring they are not putting themselves or others in danger of illness. We are a community and will rely on our community members to ensure the safety of the group. We will follow all local Washington, DC travel advisory guidelines.
NCOA is committed to building an environment of wellness and will be providing hand sanitizer throughout event venues, particularly in high-traffic and food/beverage service areas. As the situation evolves, so will our approach to keeping you safe.
We will communicate reminders from CDC and local authorities, so individuals can make informed decisions. We thank you for your patience and flexibility as we manage this and ask that you check back here for updates.
The dress code is business casual. We encourage you to bring a sweater or jacket with you since the meeting rooms are air conditioned and can be chilly.
NCOA will host networking breakfast and lunch events on May 6-8. Appetizers will be served during the Opening and Closing Receptions.
