**As of March 10, 2022, Marriott has lifted the mask policy for all vaccinated associates. With the recent decline in cases, the company feels it is safe for all vaccinated associates not to be required to wear masks indoors and outdoors.
Marriott will continue to follow the guidelines of the CDC, and I will let you know if there are any further updates.

AABE will comply with all recommendations and guidance concerning COVID-19 as set by state, county, or local authorities and as directed by the management of the Anaheim Marriott. AABE will also strongly urge all participants and attendees at the 2024 National Conference to comply with CDC recommendations.
