ASSP continues to prioritize the safety and health of all individuals who are planning to attend our Safety 2021 Professional Development Conference and Exposition, Sept. 13-15, in Austin, TX. Whether you join us in Austin or participate online, we are committed to providing you with a unique continuing education and networking experience.
Since May, we have been communicating a range of heightened safety and health protocols as part of our commitment to safeguard everyone who joins us in Austin. Our safety team continues to monitor the latest public health guidance, and based on the current data and science, we believe we can host a successful conference in Austin.
Our Safety 2021 website contains detailed information on our on-site health and safety plan, including requirements related to proof of full vaccination/negative test results, face coverings and more. Please visit our site to review those details.

Other ASSP Education and Meetings
At this time, ASSP will continue to deliver public education courses virtually. We will continue to offer our online instructor-led and live virtual classroom learning methods. In addition, all meetings of the Board of Directors, Society councils and committees, and regional operating committees are being held virtually. We will share updates as they occur.
As separate entities, ASSP chapters and their leaders must exercise good judgment in making decisions, and we strongly recommend they follow the Society's approach when considering hosting in-person events. This includes assessing the risks, working with event hosts to understand safety and health protocols, following the latest CDC guidance on gatherings, face coverings and other measures, and communicating these details frequently with your members. Doing so enables ASSP to achieve a safe and healthy operating environment across the entire organization. We understand the frustrations and disappointments caused by this extended pandemic and appreciate your thoughtful consideration and implementation of this guidance.
We thank all of our members and volunteer leaders for their dedication to safe practices and adherence to Society recommendations, which currently call for virtual meetings through Aug. 31. Please contact your chapter directly with questions about local ASSP activities.
