COVID 19 Restrictions:

  •  As of now, we anticipate that participants will be required to wear masks, have a daily temperature check, and adhere to social distancing guidelines set by the Hyatt Regency. 

  • Social distancing measures will be in the breakout rooms and the opening session ballrooms. 

  •  In order to accommodate spacing, attendees will be assigned to groups that follow slightly different schedules. (For example, Groups A, B, C, & D go to breakout sessions while group E & F visit the vendor exhibits.) This will allow attendees to fit in the reserved rooms as well as space out the number of people visiting the exhibitors. 

  • GLMA will monitor the CDC and Hyatt Regency recommendations and will update the attendees if changes occur.
