The theme for the 2021 IAACE Conference is CONNECT FOUR, EDUCATORS, PARTNER, EMPLOYERS, PROVIDERS. We are super excited to be headed north in 2021 to BLUECHIP Casino Hotel Spa in Michigan City, Indiana.

We are so excited to be together in person again this fall.  Our goal is to keep everyone safe and avoid becoming a “Super Spreader” event.  The only thing we want to take home from each other is knowledge.  In that vein, the IAACE Board of Directors has voted and decided to make Masks REQUIRED in the Conference Center.  It is recommended you wear them elsewhere at Blue Chip (you don’t know those people either), but in the Conference Center, you must wear a mask over both nose and mouth (preferred) or a clear face shield (allowed) regardless of vaccination status. We have encouraged the vaccine but it is not required.

“The CDC recommends that if you are fully vaccinated, to maximize protection from the Delta variant and prevent possibly spreading it to others, wear a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission.”

All meals will be served by conference staff, even buffets. We will be adding a breakfast option for all conference attendees.  All BC team members are required to wear masks (regardless of vaccination) BlueChip is proud that they have over 75% of our Team Members are fully vaccinated. 82% have at least one dose.

Remember the deadline to change from in-person to virtual ticket is Wednesday, September 15th. The last day to register for an in-person ticket is also Wednesday, September 15th end of the day. There are no exceptions to this as we must give our numbers for food to the hotel. Tickets may be transferred from one attendee to another up to Friday, September 25th. Virtual-only tickets will be available until Friday, September 24th.

We look forward to seeing you very soon in Michigan City or on the virtual.iaace.com platform.

The award ceremony will be Friday, October 1 at 12:00 pm Central time at Blue Chip Casino. It will also be viewable on the virtual.iaace.com platform.

We look forward to offering you a safe conference.
