Commitment to Well Being

CCAP considers the safety of all those onsite at the CCAP Annual Conference as our top priority. With that in mind, we are committed to hosting a safe event for all participants, and in partnership with Bayfront Convention Center we will be following best practices designed to mitigate exposure or spread of COVID-19 and other illnesses. However, by choosing to attend the CCAP Annual Conference in-person, attendees are acknowledging that they fully and knowingly understand and accept the risk of exposure to COVID-19 or other illnesses. If you are experiencing any symptoms or other circumstances under current public health guidance, we ask that you respect your colleagues by refraining from attending to avoid the spread of illness.
