Northwest Credit Union Association Attendee Acknowledgement and Assumption of Risk for In-Person Events

Assumption of Risk:  Attendee assumes all risks and accepts sole responsibility for any injury (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that attendee may experience or incur in connection with attending the Northwest Credit Union Association (NWCUA) EVENT.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Attendee acknowledges the highly contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assumes the risk of exposure or infection by attending the EVENT, and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, disability, and/or death to attendee.  Attendee understands that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at the EVENT may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of others who may attend the event or their families, colleagues, or others with whom they may have contact.  Attendee understands and agrees that this Acknowledgement and Assumption of Risk includes any claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of NWCUA, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in the EVENT.

Attendee agrees to comply with all COVID-related procedures that NWCUA or the EVENT Venue may implement, including, but not limited to, mask-wearing and social distancing requirements, state health department guidance, restrictions on certain activities that carry higher COVID-related risk, such as social gatherings indoors, including bars or hotel rooms, in order to protect as much as possible the health and safety of all EVENT attendees. Failure to follow the guidance as set forth by NWCUA or the EVENT Venue will result in denial of entrance to the EVENT Venue and also forfeiture of participation in the EVENT and any related fees.

The health and safety of our members, partners, and team, are of utmost concern. The NWCUA will follow the health and safety protocols set forth by both the venue and the local authorities at the time of the event. At the moment, those protocols call for temperature checks at controlled and limited entry points, the wearing of masks, social distancing, and sanitation stations. Protocols may be different by October. We will continue to monitor the situation and respond accordingly.

To help keep members safe, the NWCUA will offer cotton reusable masks and personal-sized hand sanitizer to MAXX attendees. Hand sanitation stations also will be positioned throughout the meeting space.

NWCUA will adhere to the standard(s) set forth at the time of the event and ask that our members do as well. Each member is asked, at the time of purchasing registration to MAXX, to read and check a Code of Conduct box. Those details may be found here. The Code of Conduct Agreement will be re-sent to all registrants one week prior to the event. We will also include updated health and safety guidelines and our corresponding efforts in messaging to attendees one week prior to the event.

Please note: Our plans will continue to evolve and center around the onsite experience and safety.
