COVID-19 Policy for the GCC Annual Conference

In the interest of the safety of its members and hotel staff, the GCC will follow the strictest guidelines in place at the time of the annual conference, including policies and guidance issued by GCC, Hyatt Park Central, San Francisco, and/or the State of California. 

All in-person attendees will be required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination upon check-in. (The only exemptions to this requirement will be medical or religious and must be pre-approved at least 4 weeks prior to the start of the conference.) The GCC may require on-site COVID testing during the conference, based on conditions at the time. By registering, individuals agree to such testing. 

Liability Waiver

By registering for the conference, you assume all risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury related to exposure to COVID-19, and release the GCC, its officers and directors, contractors, subcontractors and volunteers from liability for injury or harm that may result from attending the conference. By attending, you agree to follow safety measures as defined by the GCC, the Hyatt Regency Downtown San Francisco SOMA, the City of San Francisco, and the State of California. You also agree not to attend the conference if you become ill, have been directly exposed to the COVID-19 virus within two weeks prior to the conference, or exhibit COVID-19 symptoms. In that case, the GCC will make best efforts to refund registration fees less any expenses already incurred or obligated by GCC.
