The health and safety of our attendees remains our top priority as we prepare to meet in Nassau, Bahamas. We are making preparations to hold the 2023 CEO Seminar in accordance with currently applicable national government and local authority guidance, as well as working with the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar to ensure the highest standards of safety, hygiene, cleanliness and operational effectiveness for all participants. While full event details and health and safety protocols may change, you can anticipate we will follow CDC guidelines as well as Grand Hyatt Baha Mar requirements.

Assumption of COVID-19 and the Risk and Waiver of Liability Relating to 2023 CEO Seminar Access by Participants
The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies have recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people. Governmental restrictions may change at any time without prior notice. As such, BSCAI cannot guarantee eligibility to travel or to participate in the 2023 CEO Seminar if restrictions change. Additionally, if 2023 CEO Seminar attendees choose to attend the 2023 CEO Seminar and enter onto the 2023 CEO Seminar premises, they may be exposing themselves to and/or increasing your risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19. BSCAI and its members, officers, officials, directors, instructors, contractors, agents, employees, and any other representative (collectively “Entities”) and the event venue will seek to implement preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 consistent with the guidance and recommendations of public health agencies for slowing the transmission and exposure to COVID-19 which may include, but not be limited to, proof of vaccination, a negative COVID-19 test, health questionnaires for all 2023 CEO Seminar participants, sanitation procedures, and physical distancing measures at the event venue and during the 2023 CEO Seminar. BSCAI should not be held accountable for anyone attending the 2023 CEO Seminar that fails to follow any government protocol being enforced.
- Attendees are asked to follow relevant guidance by the CDC as well as adhere to government issued travel restrictions and guidance. Please, visit the CDC website as well as the Bahamas website to see current up-to-date practices on COVID-19 and other preventable diseases in the Bahamas.
