NCTM’S Plans for a Healthy and Productive Event

Updated August 26, 2022

For the 2022 Annual Meeting, we are using the CrowdPass app to help safeguard the health and safety of our participants. All attendees must show proof of negative test within 48 hours of badge pick up. To learn more Click HERE.

We continue to monitor the global and regional response to public health emergencies and may adjust our plans accordingly.

Cancellation Policy Update Due to Coronavirus (Covid-19)

As Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to be a worldwide concern, we want to offer registrants more flexibility by waiving cancellation fees for the NCTM Annual Meeting & Expo registration. While we continue to monitor local, state, and federal safety recommendations for COVID-19, customers can register with confidence and know that changes or cancellations to registration* will be allowed without penalty should the situation change or should you begin experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19. 

NCTM continues to make operational decisions following input from local, state, and federal authorities. We will continue to update this page with any new information. If you would like to make a change to your registration, you can do so at any time by emailing [email protected].

*Please note that special events, including preconference workshops, yoga and the MET Celebration are separate from registration and are nonrefundable. Groups must contain at least 5 fully paid/non-cancelled/non-pending registrations to remain eligible for discounted pricing. If the confirmed group size drops below five, each remaining group participant will be changed to an individual and balance adjusted accordingly.

LA County Department of Public Health

Covid Policies and Protocols

NCTM makes operational decisions following input from local, state, and federal authorities. Understanding that our mathematics community will travel to the NCTM Annual Meeting from many different regions, NCTM is taking the extra step of requiring a screening test for all attendees up to 48 hours before badge pickup.
