COVID-19 In-Person Event Policy

The New England Council is committed to serving our members safely and effectively.  Recognizing the value of in-person meetings and interactions for the greater business community, the New England Council will begin offering in-person events to the extent public health conditions allow.

For the safety of our members, registrants, staff, guest speakers, and the wider business community, the New England Council will require, effective January 1, 2022, that all registrants and New England Council staff  be fully vaccinated (as defined by the CDC)  to attend Council-sponsored in-person events.  Registrants will be allowed to provide proof of vaccination in advance by electronic submittal to the Council through a secure online form,  or show proof of vaccination at the registration table on the day of the event.  Proof of vaccination may be made through vaccine card, picture/facsimile of same, or through a note from a licensed health care provider indicating full vaccination status.  All vaccination or medical information will be treated as a confidential record and, if provided in advance, will be destroyed after use, unless requested by the registrant to be maintained for ease of future registration.  In the event such vaccination or medical information is maintained for future registrations, it will be maintained in a confidential file.


All attendees will also be required to abide by all applicable COVID-19-related requirements, advisories, policies, procedures, and protocols of the New England Council or the event space, as well as any local, state, or federal requirements as may be implemented from time to time.  Failure to abide by such rules may result in expulsion from the event.
