Important Safety & Health Update For In Person Attendees

Your health and safety are the College’s number one priority. At the present time, the AOCA still intends to provide members the chance to meet in person in Chicago. The College will follow city and state mandates as well as our own safety standards. The College will keep all members and attendees updated should this change.

Currently, the city of Chicago and the Fairmont Hotel have strict safety measures in place for all people over the age of 5 years old. The AOCA will keep all attendees updated on any changes with these safety precautions.

Per the city mandate of Chicago and the Fairmont Hotel, all attendees must provide proof of vaccination to check into the hotel and enter meeting space, restaurants, bars, and the spa. Masks are also required for all guests. The AOCA will keep members and attendees updated of any changes as the meeting dates arrive.
