Conference Health Policy

Help us provide a safe, comfortable experience.

AMM and AIM are excited to welcome you to Indianapolis, IN for Braking Point, our 2023 Joint Conference.

While COVID-19 emergencies have ended in most areas of the United States, we recognize that the virus is still a cause for concern for many. The following health policy for the 2023 Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana, is based on current data and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). It includes any requirements for attendees as well as an outline of the measures we are taking to ensure a safe, comfortable experience for attendees. These measures will help reduce the chance for transmission of any virus at the conference; however, if you are sick or feeling you are getting sick, we ask that you please stay home. We will revise this policy as needed based upon local conditions and the guidance of the local health officials and/or the CDC.

Attendance Requirements: 

All attendees may be asked to provide proof of one of the following:

  • vaccination for COVID-19
  • OR negative test results no earlier than 2-3 days prior to the first day of in-person programming, Wednesday, July 26, 2023
  • OR that you had COVID-19 no more than 90 days before and no less than 5 days before the first day of in-person programming, Wednesday, July 26, 2023  

AMM and AIM will rely on the integrity and honesty of our attendees. All attendees will be asked to confirm acceptance of the Health Policy during registration. We will not review these records at the time of check in.


As of February 16, 2023: We are not requiring that attendees wear masks at the conference. However, our conference is a mask-friendly event, and we encourage anyone who wishes to wear a mask to do so.

Meeting and Event Spaces: 

We will work with the conference hotel, Crowne Plaza Indianapolis Downtown, and hosts of offsite events, workshops, and tours to provide safe environments for learning and networking. We will ensure that all meeting and event spaces follow recommended safety protocols based on guidance from the CDC and/or local health officials. Read the Crowne Plaza’s statement.


Vaccination is the most effective way to protect yourself and fellow attendees, but exposure to COVID-19 is an inherent risk in any public location where people are present. We cannot guarantee you will not be exposed during the conference. The CDC recommends that people in high-risk groups who are not vaccinated consult with their healthcare provider about attending any large gathering.

If you plan to attend the in-person conference, we also ask that you diligently monitor symptoms within the days prior to and during the conference, avoid close contact with people who are sick, and wash your hands often. We ask that individuals who are unvaccinated, have tested positive for COVID-19, or who have symptoms, to protect themselves and reduce the risk to others by not attending this conference.

We also understand that attending an in-person conference this year might be an overwhelming experience and have incorporated longer-than-usual breaks between activities to allow time for rest and self-care. We will also be hosting a full day of virtual programming prior to the conference, for individuals who do not wish to participate in-person.

Contact Tracing: 

We will have a limited supply of rapid tests available onsite for use by symptomatic attendees or individuals who were contacted due to potential exposure to COVID-19 during the conference.

Any attendee who feels they might have COVID-19 symptoms or feels ill during the conference should immediately go to their hotel room to quarantine. If the attendee is not staying in a hotel, they should return to their accommodations or home. Please alert conference staff as soon as possible about your condition: 

Within 5 days after the conference, we urge any attendee who tests positive for COVID to alert conference staff using the contact information above. We will inform attendees of confirmed positive case(s) without revealing identifying information.

Thank you for your cooperation.
