I acknowledge that the health and safety measures which SPR have announced may change after I sign and submit this waiver and release.  Therefore, I agree to follow all instructions and safety precautions that SPR, the event venue, and any governing authorities will apply while I attend the meeting.  

Additionally, I agree that my failure to do so may result in SPR excluding me from the meeting without refund, reimbursement, or other remuneration.

International Travelers

If you're traveling to Denver from outside the U.S. and are unsure if you're eligible to board an international flight, we recommend taking a short travel assessment developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Based on your answers about your COVID-19 vaccine history, the assessment can tell you whether or not you will be able to board a flight to the U.S. and it will also provide details on the documentation you need to present to your airline before boarding.
