Upcoming Events

AACI events bring together cancer center leadership with national cancer research and advocacy groups, industry, and government health agencies. AACI also publishes cancer center event announcements as a benefit to members. 

Please note: AACI and its cancer center members are following recommendations to prevent the spread of COVID-19. As a result, many scheduled events are being held virtually or with vaccination and mask requirements in place.

14th Annual AACI CRI Meeting
July 12, 2022 - July 14, 2022
Loews Chicago O'Hare Hotel, 5300 N. River Rd., Rosemont, IL 60018

The health and safety of meeting attendees is of paramount importance. AACI continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and related public health guidelines. We are currently planning for an in-person event, July 12-14, at the Loews Chicago O’Hare Hotel, and will implement protective measures in accordance with current guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the City of Chicago. 

Meeting Policies and FAQ

Can I register with a group of colleagues at a discounted rate? No. Group registrations were available only to attendees of the 2021 virtual CRI meeting. Since we are planning an in-person meeting this year, we are providing the same registration options available for previous in-person meetings.

Will there be an option to attend this meeting virtually? For those who are unable to attend the meeting in person, AACI will provide a virtual option. To register as a virtual attendee, select the "Member - Virtual Only" registration type. This will give you access to all sessions held in the main ballroom. Login information will be provided closer to the meeting. 

Do I need to be vaccinated to attend the CRI meeting? Yes. Proof of full vaccination will be requested at registration and when checking in to the meeting. No attendee will be permitted to pick up their badge without submitting proof of vaccination status. In the event that an attendee is not fully vaccinated or does not disclose their vaccination status at registration, they will be required to present a negative PCR test result upon entering the event and must wear a mask throughout the duration of the meeting. The PCR test must be taken 72 hours before the start of the meeting. “Full vaccination,” as defined by the CDC, means a person has received their primary series (two doses) of an approved COVID-19 vaccine (Moderna or Pfizer) or a single dose of the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson vaccine; boosters are not required for attendance. 

What is the CRI meeting mask policy? AACI will require anyone of undisclosed or incomplete vaccination status to wear a high-quality mask (N95 or KN95 preferred) throughout the meeting. A mask must completely cover your mouth and nose and may be removed only briefly for eating and drinking. 
Do I need to take a COVID test before entering the meeting? If an attendee is not fully vaccinated or does not disclose their vaccination status, they will be required to present the result of a PCR test taken 72 hours before the meeting. Fully vaccinated attendees are not required to present test results. However, any attendees, regardless of vaccination status, should refrain from attending the meeting if they have knowingly been exposed to COVID-19 or are experiencing any symptoms. If an attendee is already on-site and experiencing symptoms, they should be tested as soon as possible and remain in their hotel room. 

AACI reserves the right to revise vaccination, masking, and testing policies based on evolving public health recommendations, and will notify attendees of any changes as soon as possible.
