ASPET also recommends wearing a mask during the meeting when unable to keep sufficient distance from other attendees.

ASPET has the right to add health and safety requirements as we deem necessary. By registering, you will need to certify that you voluntarily assume all risks related to communicable disease exposure and will follow the protocols set forth by ASPET and local authorities.
