Coronavirus (COVID-19) Advisory

NextUp takes the safety of our community very seriously. We have made the following changes to our COVID-19 policy:

  • NextUp HQ Conferences, Executive Forum and Leadership Summit, may be held as virtual, hybrid or in-person experiences in 2022.
  • NextUp HQ Learning Programs may be executed as virtual or hybrid events in 2022.
  • NextUp Regional Events may be executed as virtual, hybrid, or in-person events in

NextUp will continue to review and update this policy as new information regarding COVID-19 is made available and reserves the right to adjust any previously communicated advisory, protocols and procedures.

Given the recent changes to CDC and state COVID-19 policies for events, we strongly recommend vaccinations and boosters but will no longer require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test to attend NextUp events, excepting where required by local law and/or mandates. We also urge attendees to wear masks while in close physical proximity with other attendees.

To ensure the safety of our community, NextUp has established a consistent protocol that will be utilized for all NextUp branded events where in-person attendance may exist. All in-person attendees must agree to the following:

  • I will follow all COVID-19 protocols as directed by the venue and/or local or state government.
  • I agree that if I am feeling sick within 48 hours of the event, I will not attend in person.
  • I agree that should I become sick while attending a NextUp event, I will inform the event organizer and leave the event immediately.
  • I indemnify NextUp if I am ill with COVID-19 while attending a NextUp event.

Because additional health and safety requirements may be in place for the event location, we strongly encourage all guests to carefully review upcoming event details by visiting nextupisnow.org/calendar and selecting the event(s) for which you have purchased or plan to purchase registration.

For more information, please refer to: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).   

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide updates on nextupisnow.org. If you have any questions, please email us at connect@nextupisnow.org
