AACTE Event Emergency and Inclement Weather Policy
All nationwide AACTE events, including but not limited to the 2022 Annual Meeting, will be canceled due to inclement weather or other acts of God (including, but not limited to, flood, fire, or natural disaster) only if the venue and/or location of the event is closed or provides notice to AACTE of its inability to hold the event, or if the local government declares an emergency status is in effect for the location of the event.
If a nationwide AACTE event is canceled due to inclement weather or other acts of God as set forth herein, every attempt will be made to reschedule the event, and your registration fee will be applied to the rescheduled event date. If AACTE is unable to reschedule the event, your registration fee will be applied to a subsequent nationwide AACTE event of your choice.
