2021 CCM CONVENTION - SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

Save the date: Tuesday, November 30, 2021!  Check back here for more information.  

We are excited to host our Annual Convention at Mohegan Sun on November 30 & December1, 2021. All of CCM leadership and staff believe it is extremely important to be transparent in our plans to allow each member to make an informed decision based on their individual needs, concerns, and expectations. We recognize that it is impossible to develop guidelines to meet everyone's desires, which is why we are relying on CDC guidelines, state executive orders, and policies of the convention center and hotel properties.

We are pleased that Connecticut continues to show strong improvement with cases continuing to decline, as well as hospitalizations and deaths. As of June 15, test positivity rates are below .5%, and the number of vaccinated Connecticut residents continues to increase. 

Please find a list of frequently asked questions below and let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

Will CCM require all attendees and staff to wear face masks/coverings and practice social distancing during the 2021 Annual Convention?

The wearing of masks is voluntary, but we do ask that those unvaccinated registrants (including unvaccinated guests, exhibitors, and CCM staff) wear a mask during the entire Convention.

We highly encourage all Convention attendees to be courteous of other’s personal space and social-distancing preferences.  

Will any training class or meeting capacities be altered for safety?

CCM is prepared to alter class capacity to meet CDC guidelines. As of now, all training classes will be at full capicity, but that is subject to change based on CDC guidelines.

Once registration is complete and we know how many attendees to expect, we will work to set the rooms in the best manner possible.  Every effort will be made to place larger classes in larger rooms to maximize separation, but all meeting rooms will not have a guaranteed six feet of separation between chairs and rows.

Has CCM made any changes to enhance safety for Convention attendees?

This year’s convention will include modified food service, which will allow members more freedom of choice to make dining decisions to their comfort level. Events with food will be served in a safe manner consistent with CDC and DPH recommendations. 

Will there be any virtual components of the Convention?

For those who have attended CCM’s Annual Conventions in the past, we know there is nothing like the in-person experience, which is why we have worked so hard to ensure your safety at hosting this year’s gathering. With that in mind, the event will only be available for in-person attendance.

Please rest assured that we fully understand that these are challenging times, and we are taking every consideration into account to plan an event that is as safe as possible. We continue to think of other possibilities and encourage you to share your input with us. Please check back here as we continue to update guidance for the 2021 Annual Convention based on CDC and state guidelines. We encourage everyone to consider their own situation and make their decision based on their own personal circumstances and comfort level, with any necessary guidance from their medical professionals and others.
