 Providing a safe environment for our members, guests and staff is our top priority. Achieving this is a shared responsibility. Based on the current updated guidance from the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we will require attendees to wear masks during this year’s Fall Conference. 

The AASB staff will continue to closely monitor COVID-19 case numbers and promptly notify registrants of any changes or updates to safety guidelines and protocols for the conference. 


At this time, in-person attendance is the only Fall Conference registration option. Should case numbers remain high in the weeks to come, we will make necessary adjustments to add a virtual option based on guidance from the ADPH and CDC. We will gladly allow members to switch their registrations from in-person to virtual if that option becomes necessary.
