Event Safety and COVID-19

There’s simply no substitute for meeting face to face.

After 17+ months of social distancing and virtual events, we have eased back into hosting in-person networking and other professional events as safely as possible.

Out Professionals is focused on your safety.

  • Our events are open only to those who are fully vaccinated and arrive at registration with proof of vaccination.
  • Events are held outside or in open-air spaces as much as possible, weather permitting.
  • We always follow or exceed any CDC, state, and local/city safety requirements that help prevent the transmission of COVID-19.
  • Given that the current situation is fluid and evolving, we reserve the right to change the requirements to attend our events or move the dates of events with limited notice as the situation requires.
