In order to comply with the law and provide a more comfortable environment for all attendees, an additional term of attendance is outlined below. By attending, all participants agree to comply with the following:

Pursuant to WAC 292-110-010, WSSDA is a state agency responsible for the proper use of state resources. Unauthorized distribution of materials that support, promote the interests of, or solicit for an outside organization or group by an attendee atany WSSDA-sponsored event or in any conference facility utilized by WSSDA for such events may result in revocation of the credentials that allow that individual to attend the event and/or barring of that individual’s attendance at future WSSDA-sponsored events.

Health & Safety Requirements

We have taken enhanced health and safety measures related to COVID-19 for our attendees, venue/vendor partners and WSSDA staff. Attendees must follow all posted instructions while attending the 2022 WSSDA Annual Conference. We will be following the guidelines put forth by the Washington State Governor’s Office and local health authorities. As those guidelines and those of the venue change, our approach to health and safety will change with them. Regulations in place at the time may require conference participants to complete a health screening and to wear masks throughout the event. State or venue regulations may be different for people who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 than for those who haven’t. We encourage vaccination prior to the event to protect yourself and fellow attendees.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public space where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and attendees with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.

By attending the 2022 WSSDA Annual Conference the attendee voluntarily assumes all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and agree to any posted health-related instructions
