We are looking forward to hosting the 28th Annual Paul J. Hartman SALT Forum on October 27-29, 2021.  As mentioned previously, we are holding a robust in-person program here in Nashville and will also provide it virtually for those unable to travel.   

If you plan to attend in-person, the requirements are as follows:

1.You must provide proof of full vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test result taken within 72 hours of the first day of the Forum.  (Digital or printed proof of the test results must be dated and time-stamped.)

2.Masks are required unless you are seated and socially distanced at least 6 feet apart.

3.You will be asked to answer the following questions, and if any answers are “yes” you will not be able to attend.

*Have you been in direct contact with anyone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days?

*Have you had any COVID-19 symptoms in the last 14 days?

*Are you currently awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test?

*Have you tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days?

4.All attendees must sign a waiver. The language will likely read:
