COVID-19 Protocols


While we are looking forward to hosting our 2022 Annual Conference in-person, the health and safety of our members and attendees is of the utmost importance. This page details the policies and safety precautions CPAK has put into place to help mitigate the COVID-19 risk.

Virtual Participation Option

There will be an option to participate in the conference virtually. Virtual attendees will be able to watch a live stream of the keynote speaker, Student Affairs Professional Panel, educational sessions, and the CPAK business meeting for $25. We encourage anyone who does not feel comfortable attending in-person to utilize this option.

Refunds for In-Person Participation/Switching to Virtual Participation

If you register for the in-person option, but are unable to attend the conference due to a COVID-19 diagnosis or exposure, please email kentucky@acpa.nche.edu. We will be able to switch your participation to virtual and refund the difference in registration fees or refund the registration fee in full.
