Event Protocols

Thank you for joining us at our 2021 Annual Meeting at the JW Marriot Turnberry Resort & Spa. We appreciated everyone's compliance with the following event protocols: 


COVID-19 Protocols:

There is nothing more important to us than the well-being of our members, guests, and their families. With that in mind, we are providing a heightened level of safety at our upcoming event and are committed to demonstrating a spirit of respect and care to all attendees at Annual Meeting.

Requirements to Attend the Event:

NACD is requiring every attendee of the 2021 Annual Meeting to either:

  • be fully vaccinated or
  • submit a negative COVID-19 test 72 hours prior to the meeting.

We respect personal choices and are committed to accommodating the well-being needs of everyone by implementing protocols that give all attendees choice as it relates to their health.

  • Attendees will be asked to provide “COVID-19 vaccine validation” details to a secure, third-party provider in advance of the event. Detailed information about how to provide COVID-19 vaccine validation will be provided in the coming weeks directly from our vendor ShareMy.Health.
  • Attendees who do not wish to provide vaccine information or who have not been fully vaccinated will be required to provide proof of, through the ShareMy.Health application, a negative COVID-19 test, 72 hours in advance of arriving on-site.
  • Additionally, daily health check-ins (3-5 questions) via the ShareMy.Health app that will need to be answered to receive your daily “Passport” to sessions.

Face Covering Policy:

The JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa is requiring its staff to wear face masks when attending to meeting guests to protect both their guests and their staff, even though Florida does not have the mandate to do so.

NACD will not require masks at our meeting, but will encourage any attendee who wishes to wear a mask, to feel welcome to do so. NACD will have masks and hand sanitizer available. We know everyone will be happy to be back together and we know everyone has a different risk tolerance. To that end, we ask attendees to be respectful of each other’s comfort levels in mask-wearing, hugs, and handshakes during our event.
