ANCA’s priority in all meetings and events is the safety and welfare of our attendees, exhibitors, partners, and team. Therefore, ANCA will implement and follow all current recommendations and requirements related to COVID-19 from the CDC, State, and Local health departments. In addition, ANCA continuously monitors the science around COVID-19 and its variants and updates plans and protocols as needed.
ANCA strongly recommends that all participants who are eligible are up to date on COVID Vaccinations. If you are traveling to an ANCA event on public transportation (including trains and planes) wearing a facemask is highly recommended during travel. If you are experiencing COVID symptoms or have received a positive diagnosis within 5 days preceding, please stay home. Any National, State or Local regulation issued, including an event host site regulation, that supersedes these recommendations will automatically be in effect.

Some areas of the CONNECTS platform allow you to provide content (in chat areas, forums, associated social media pages, etc.) By posting, uploading, publishing, distributing, or transmitting information such as photos, videos, reviews, messages, content, or other personal information on the CONNECTS platform or other ANCA-sponsored forums, blogs, or other communities, you represent and warrant that you are the sole author and owner of such content, and you further represent and warrant that you have permission from anyone included in any photos or videos, or if a child, you have permission from the child’s parent or guardian.
The open exchange of ideas and the freedom of thought and expression are central to the aims and goals of ANCA; these require an environment that recognizes the inherent worth of every person and group, that fosters dignity, understanding, and mutual respect, and that embraces diversity. For these reasons, ANCA is dedicated to providing a harassment-free CONNECTS experience. ANCA Peer CONNECTS participants violating these standards may be asked to leave, at the discretion of the ANCA Board and meeting organizers.
