Your health and safety are a priority for us as we gather together for the first time in two years. Therefore, for the safety of everyone in attendance, the following protocols have been implemented by NAACP.  

Everyone attending the Convention, participating in a convention event, or visiting the NAACP Experience (exhibit hall) MUST be registered. A badge is required to participate in all convention events.  All attendees must be fully vaccinated to attend.

Individuals are considered fully vaccinated:   

  • Two weeks after receiving their second dose in a two-dose series for the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines; or   

  • Two weeks after receiving a single-dose vaccine for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.  

  • Boosters are encouraged but NOT REQUIRED.   

Before or upon arrival at the Atlantic City Convention Center, all attendees, exhibitors, speakers, sponsors, vendors, and staff will be required to show proof of vaccination or provide your vaccination status to attend. Instructions on uploading your vaccination card will be sent in your convention registration email.  

Face masks must be worn at all times unless you are eating or drinking.

Pre, Onsite, and Post Convention Testing & Quarantine Requirements   

NAACP refers to CDC guidelines to ensure the safety of our attendees and staff. In addition, all convention attendees and staff must adhere to the following COVID-19 precautions relative to their vaccination status:
