Those interested in presenting virtually must send their recorded presentations a month in advance of the conference dates. Proof of vaccination is required for presenting and attending all of the in-person sessions.


ARCE will of course be following local COVID-related guidelines in place at the time and adding requirements for vaccination cards or negative COVID-tests, masking inside, distancing, etc. in order to do our best to help keep everyone safe. We promise to stay engaged and actively utilize the safest protocols available at the time of our Annual Meeting, and so will our vendors.
