As such, we are requiring all attendees to wear masks, regardless of their vaccination status, while indoors on hotel property during the conference.  By attending APA Virginia’s Annual conference, you are assuming all risks related to exposure to COVID-19. APA Virginia will not be liable for any real or perceived exposure to COVID-19 or other transmitted condition.

If you do not feel comfortable with APA Virginia measures, there is a virtual ticket option available.
