Can I do a combination of both in-person and virtual?

Registering for the In-person rate provides access to the live event at the Hilton Chicago, and provides complete access to the virtual meeting online. Attendees will have access to the on-demand library of event content for 60 days after the completion of the meeting.

What is the refund/cancellation policy for hotel reservations?

Hotel Cancellation Policy

For best available rates and to support ACNM we ask that all attendees reserve rooms only using the housing links provided (available beginning in late December). A deposit of one night’s room and tax will be forfeited entirely to the hotel if cancellation occurs within 72 hours of arrival date.

What precautions will you be taking to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the venue?

The Hilton Chicago will be following guidelines from the CDC and their local regulations in order to keep attendees safe. As a reminder, ACNM requires full vaccination to enter the Annual meeting. ACNM’s first priority in all meetings and events decisions is the safety and welfare of our attendees, exhibitors, partners and team. In order to enable in-person events to take place with lower risk to participants, ACNM is requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination for admittance to Meeting. This policy is based on guidance and recommendations issued by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other public health authorities. The COVID-19 vaccines approved by the FDA for emergency use authorization and the vaccines that the FDA has fully approved have been determined to be critical in reducing the community prevalence of COVID-19. 

The City of Chicago lifted its mask mandate effective, February 28, 2022. We encourage all meeting attendees to wear their mask in indoor spaces; however, it is not a requirement.

As part of our commitment to the safety at American College of Nurse Midwives all In-person attendees must provide proof of COVID-19 Vaccination before checking in.

  • ACNM will be using Health Pass by CLEAR, which provides a secure, digital proof of COVID-related health insights via the free CLEAR mobile app. Complete your health screening with Health Pass by CLEAR ahead of time for expedited check-in and entry!
    Download and enroll here: Apple App Store or the Android App Store
  • For the most efficient entry possible, every attendee should enroll with CLEAR before the event to complete their COVID-19 pre-screening. Once your vaccination record has been uploaded to the platform, it can typically take up to 30 minutes for your status to be verified. We encourage all attendees to complete this process at least 24 hours before the event.

Can I register for select days only? I don’t want to attend the entire event.
ACNM does not offer one-day rates for the 2022 meeting.

How can I download a receipt to submit to my employer for reimbursement?
A receipt will be included at the bottom of your registration confirmation email, with a link to access it at anytime. 

What is the cancellation policy for the in-person meeting?
