The Westin Westminster is a part of Marriott International, which has implemented rigorous cleaning standards. The Westin Westminster also recently upgraded their HVAC system for improved air circulation and offers clearly marked prompts for safe social interactions, expanded access to hygiene stations and more frequent cleaning of the hotel’s meeting space. Plus, mobile check-in, mobile key, and service requests via the Marriott Bonvoy app are also available. For details about the hotel’s commitment to clean, click here.

Food will be served at both breakfasts and lunches, as well as during the Wednesday reception. The hotel has a heightened focus on safe food handling procedures. If these plans need to change, we will follow local health requirements and procedures around food safety and serving.
CML is following all public health guidelines that will be in place at the time of the event. If masks and social distancing measures are required for indoor gatherings at the time of the event, CML will require that attendees wear facial coverings and adhere to social distancing measures. CML encourages everyone who is eligible to get vaccinated to do so, but we will not require a vaccine to participate in the conference. As we learn more from public health officials, we will share that information. As of now, we encourage attendees to bring a mask, wash your hands frequently, consider your own health and be aware of others. CML will share regular updates as we get closer regarding seating arrangements for general sessions, meals, and concurrent sessions.
CML understands that not everyone will feel comfortable traveling to Westminster in September and that many of us are facing budget cuts that could impact your ability to attend the conference in person. We are planning to offer a Virtual Special Conference Sept. 30-Oct. 1. This virtual event will re-broadcast some of the sessions from the in-person event, in addition to offering 16 new sessions including two CLEs, a live general session keynote with Clarence Anthony, president and CEO of the National League of Cities and a limited virtual exhibit hall. All in-person conference registrants will receive a complimentary registration for the Virtual Special Conference and separate Virtual Special Conference registration will also be available.
Registration for the Special Conference will open June 9. The hotel room block and overflow hotel room blocks will open at the same time. Please click here to view the agenda for the Special Conference in September. Click here to view the agenda for the Virtual Special Conference.
