NBAA’s highest priority is the health and safety of all event participants. Following the guidance of health and safety experts, NBAA has issued requirements for all 2022 NBAA Leadership Conference participants to ensure an interactive and successful event for all attendees.

COVID-19 Testing

NBAA encourages all Leadership Conference participants to self test for COVID-19 prior to travel and prior to attending the event each day. NBAA will provide all participants with a complimentary self test kit during badge pickup. The self test kit contains two tests for use during the 2022 NBAA Leadership Conference.

Proof of a negative result from a professionally administered test is required for individuals who do not present proof of full vaccination against COVID-19.

Entry Requirements

All Leadership Conference participants will be required to present proof of one of the following upon badge pickup:

  • Full vaccination against COVID-19, or
  • A negative result from a professionally administered Nucleic Acid Amplification Test for COVID-19 conducted within the prior 36 hours.

Individuals who have COVID-19 symptoms or are within the quarantine or isolation periods outlined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) may not attend the Leadership Conference.

2022 NBAA Leadership Conference Vaccination Deadline

To be fully vaccinated for the 2022 NBAA Leadership Conference, you must receive the second dose of an approved two-dose COVID-19 vaccine (such as Pfizer or Moderna), or a single dose of Johnson and Johnson’s Janssen vaccine, by Jan. 24, 2022.

Proof of Full Vaccination

People are considered fully vaccinated:

  • 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer/COMIRNATY or Moderna vaccines, or
  • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine

In addition to Prizer/COMIRNATY, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson/Janssen, accepted vaccines include those authorized for use by the World Health Organization, including vaccines produced by AstraZeneca/Oxford, Covishield, Sinopharm and Sinovac.

Mixed COVID-19 vaccine schedules of vaccines recognized by the World Health Organization are permitted to establish full vaccination status.

For further information on approved vaccines, refer to the World Health Organization. For help finding a COVID-19 vaccine, visit vaccines.gov.

At this time, a booster shot is not required. However, the CDC recommends that eligible individuals get a booster shot.

Participants will provide proof of full vaccination at the time of badge pickup, either by using the CLEAR app or presenting their vaccination card and photo ID.

Proof of Negative Test Result

Participants choosing this option will be required to provide proof of a negative result from a professionally administered Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT), such as a PCR test, for COVID-19. Results from self tests or antigen tests, even if professionally administered, will not permit badge pickup. Learn more about NAAT tests. Results will be valid for badge pickup for 36 hours from the time the test was conducted.

Participants will provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test at the time of badge pickup, either by using the CLEAR app or presenting digital or printed proof of their negative test result and photo ID.

Using the CLEAR App

To securely provide proof of full vaccination or a recent negative test, download the CLEAR app and complete these steps before you arrive:

  1. Open the CLEAR app and tap on the White Health Pass tile.

On-Site Testing

NBAA will offer on-site testing for individuals who do not present proof of full vaccination or a negative test result. On-site testing will be available during registration hours on Monday, Feb. 7, and Tuesday, Feb. 8. On-site testing will NOT be available for participants arriving on Wednesday, Feb. 9.

Attendees utilizing this service will be responsible for the cost of the test.

Please be aware that participants will not be permitted access to the venue while awaiting the test results.

Face Coverings

While masks are not required, current guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention encourages their use for everyone in indoor public settings, regardless of vaccination status.

Our health and safety partner, CrowdRX, recommends that all participants wear a higher quality mask, such as a KN95 or N95 respirator.

Important COVID-19 Information

COVID-19, a highly infectious disease caused by the novel coronavirus, is currently classified as a pandemic by public health authorities. It is associated with severe symptoms including acute respiratory issues, severe damage to lungs and other organs and death. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person, and individuals over age 65 and people of any age who have certain underlying medical conditions are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. COVID-19 is not fully understood at this time, and understanding of the symptoms, risks and spread of the disease may change over time. Although NBAA will take all reasonable safety precautions to protect the health of participants, because thousands of attendees are expected, NBAA cannot guarantee that participants will not be exposed to COVID-19 during attendance at the event.

COVID-19 Liability Waiver/Assumption of Risk

All participants at the 2022 NBAA Leadership Conference acknowledge that their participation is completely voluntary and that they understand the dangers of COVID-19 and the risks of exposure described above. All participants further acknowledge that they assume all risks associated with COVID-19 in connection with attendance at the 2022 NBAA Leadership Conference, including risks to their own health and the health of others with whom they may come in contact during or after the 2022 NBAA Leadership Conference (“Assumed Risks”). Additionally, all participants at the 2022 NBAA Leadership Conference agree, on behalf of themselves, their heirs and assigns, and anyone who might assert a claim on their behalf, to release, indemnify and hold harmless NBAA, the the 2022 NBAA Leadership Conference venues, NBAA partners and their respective owners, directors, officers, employees, representatives, heirs and assigns from any and all liability, claims or causes of action that may be released under applicable law arising from or relating to the Assumed Risks. This release includes any claims for personal injury, disease, death, property loss or any other loss, including but not limited to claims of negligence and any right to seek damages.

Any person who attends an NBAA convention, conference, seminar or other program grants permission to NBAA, its employees and agents (collectively "NBAA") to record his or her visual/audio images, including, but not limited to, photographs, digital images, voices, sound or video recordings, audio clips, or accompanying written descriptions, and, without notifying such person, to use his or her name and such images for any purpose of NBAA, including advertisements for NBAA and its programs.
