2021 ALWRC Updates

by | Aug 30, 2021 | Uncategorized

We are still on track for an in-person event at the Perdido Beach Resort from September 8-10, 2021. We will not change to a hybrid or virtual model for this event.

Please note the following expectations for ALL attendees:

  • You must wear a mask indoors unless actively eating or drinking
  • Socially distance from others whenever possible
  • Practice good hygiene by using hand sanitizer stations throughout the day, especially during breaks and meals
  • Follow CDC-recommended guidelines for COVID-19
  • Attendees will complete a COVID screening questionnaire during initial check-in at the registration desk 

Here’s some of the ways we are doing this:


    • Providing each conference attendee with their own personal hand sanitizer product
    • Changing the location of the 9/9/21 Poster Session & Social to a much larger indoor room with an additional, adjacent outdoor deck (weather permitting) as well as breaking up the crowd into 2 shifts
    • Using round tables throughout the event to increase social distancing
    • Limiting room capacity for breakout sessions to seating room only
    • Perdido Beach Resort Safety Measures can be viewed here
    • Staggering dismissal of tables and breakout rooms during breaks and meals
