The DPS Partners are committed to producing and delivering exceptional learning and networking opportunities, while continuing to prioritize the health and safety of our attendees, staff, and vendors. With guidance from the city and state guidelines and based on current health trends and continuing improvement of public health and vaccination rates, the 2022 Disability Policy Seminar will be held in person in Washington, DC at the Renaissance Washington DC hotel.
Your health and safety are important to us. The Disability Policy Seminar partners are actively monitoring the guidelines for health and safety measures from the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the District of Columbia. We will comply with all mandated federal and District of Columbia public health guidelines, as well as the Renaissance Washington DC hotel’s safety precautions—including requirements related to masking and social distancing during the event. These requirements are subject to change at any time.
Attendance in person is limited to people who have been fully vaccinated (as defined by the CDC). In-person attendees will be asked to provide proof of vaccination. A virtual option is available to those who are not vaccinated or are unable to travel to Washington, DC.
We will continue to provide updates as they become available.
