CHI’s Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination Policy

Your Safety is Our Top Priority

To ensure maximum safety, CHI has instituted a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy for all in-person participants across all of our events. Attendees will be asked to furnish proof of vaccination. Additional details on the vaccine policy will be provided upon registration. We feel it is our community duty to ensure CHI events are part of the COVID-19 solution to reopening safely. We are confident the scientific community, which developed the vaccine in record time, will rally behind us on this first-of-its-kind policy.

Attendees that cannot participate because of this policy, or due to travel restrictions, are encouraged to participate using our highly praised virtual event platform. Our virtual events are designed to provide you with an in-person experience at your convenience, anywhere, anytime.

This policy may shift as the virus abates, but we feel strongly this is the right time and the correct protocol for CHI to reopen safely.



What additional safety protocols will you be instituting onsite?

CHI will follow all local guidelines. Currently, this includes mask wearing and capacity limits.

Will CHI have increased cleaning protocols?

Each event venue will follow strict guidelines as regulated by state and local governments.

What about social distancing guidelines?

We will follow physical distance rules. We’ll be monitoring the event capacity overall and in meeting rooms specifically.

How should we greet and meet our fellow attendees?

Please follow state and local guidelines as well as your own best judgement.

Our Code of Conduct

All in-person attendees must agree to CHI’s Code of Conduct.


NEW Flexible Registration Policy – Seamlessly switch between in-person and/or virtual

Select an in-person or virtual option, and you have the flexibility to switch your preferred event experience at any time leading up to the conference. Simply contact us, and we will either charge you the difference for upgrading to in-person or credit back the price for transferring to virtual. Our flexible registration is designed to take the uncertainties out of these uncertain times.
