AACSB's Health and Safety Commitment and Guidelines

AACSB’s top priority is the health and safety of our event attendees and staff. We are working with our partners and vendors to develop protocols that will continue to evolve to reflect the current state of the pandemic response and ensure the safety for everyone in attendance. We will continue to monitor and follow mandates required by federal, state, and local jurisdictions, as well as the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and World Health Organization.

AACSB is committed to bring you highly engaging learning and networking experiences in a variety of modalities. If you are vaccinated and comfortable gathering with your peers, please join us in-person. If you are not vaccinated and/or uncomfortable gathering with your peers, please join us virtually. We are committed to your health and safety and delivering highly relevant content to you in a way that is convenient and valuable.

PLAN AHEAD

  • Get Vaccinated: If you are making plans to attend the event in-person, we strongly encourage you to get your vaccine as soon as it is available to you. We recommend that you are fully vaccinated (14 days after your vaccine shot) prior to traveling to the event.  If you will not be fully vaccinated by the start of an in-person AACSB event, please join us virtually.
  • Know Your Local Travel Protocols: If you are attending the in-person event, please make sure you fully understand your local government travel restrictions and return protocols. In addition, please review the current guidelines for the city of New Orleans.

ONSITE SAFETY PROTOCOLS

  • Masks Are Required: Disposable masks will be provided to attendees who may forget or misplace their own. We recommend that attendees read the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines for best practices regarding usage of masks.

  • Hand Sanitizing Stations Provided: We recommend that attendees utilize hand sanitizing as often as possible throughout the event. We also encourage you to wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Physical Distancing: Will be practiced when available and based on federal, state, and local jurisdiction guidelines. We ask that attendees do not move chairs between tables. Session and total attendance will be capped based on physically distanced floorplans and capacities.

  • Enhanced Cleaning and Sanitization: Meeting rooms will be thoroughly cleaned between each session according to the hotel's comprehensive cleanliness standards. Here is more information on Hyatt's Global Care & Cleanliness Commitment.
