COVID Protocols:
We are grateful to be able to hold in-person events. Safety and reducing risk are priorities at these events, and we need attendees' support in maintaining these priorities. TAIS is monitoring state and local statistics and following guidance from the CDC. At this time, we are requiring all attendees to wear masks at our in-person events and are also arranging seating to allow for social distancing; providing masks, hand sanitizer, and bleach wipes at our events; and arranging a minimum of six feet distance between presenters and attendees to allow for presenters to be unmasked if they choose. We will continue to monitor numbers and CDC recommendations and may make changes to our protocols closer to the event date.
