Health and Safety

NACAC is committed to the health and safety of our employees, members, exhibitors, service partners, and the students and families we help support. Due to the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and to help mitigate further spread of the virus, NACAC has implemented the following Health and Safety Policy and Protocols for GWI.

Dress Code

Attire at Guiding the Way to Inclusion is business casual. Wear comfortable shoes. We recommend dressing in layers as air conditioning is difficult to regulate in large facilities. Rooms may be overly warm or cool.
