NAEYC Event Safety During the COVID-19 Global Pandemic

In keeping with the Association's duty to care and our responsibility as an event host, NAEYC is guided by best practices recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Following this guidance, NAEYC leadership has adopted a vaccination or negative PCR test requirement for the in-person Annual Conference. All attendees, presenters, exhibitors, and NAEYC staff will be required to meet the CDC status of “Up to Date” with their COVID-19 vaccinations. Read the full policy here.
