With markets and pundits focused squarely on short-term concerns about inflation, banking sector stresses, and looming recession, the NABE Annual Meeting will take a step back to concentrate on longer-term opportunities and challenges for the global economy. Arranged around the theme of “Beyond the Business Cycle: Adapting to a New Global Paradigm,” the conference includes sessions covering the evolving geopolitical and trade landscape, the future of work and workplaces, the energy transition in the face of climate change, and the impact of higher interest rates on rapidly expanding sovereign debt.

Code of Conduct
All participants at NABE events must abide by the NABE Code of Conduct.

Health/Safety Guidelines

Effective November 29, 2022, NABE will no longer require proof of vaccination status to attend a NABE in-person meeting or event. Mask-wearing at NABE meetings and events is optional.

Instead, NABE expects attendees to take responsibility themselves for following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on measures to reduce infection from COVID-19 and to protect against severe complications. NABE encourages all attendees to follow the CDC’s recommendation that everyone over age 12 receive the updated bivalent vaccine as soon as they are eligible to do so (e.g., 2 months past their last shot). For more information, please review the guidelines here

All attendees are asked to take an at-home COVID-19 rapid antigen test before traveling to any NABE meeting and should not attend if they test positive or have symptoms of COVID-19. NABE will also have COVID tests available onsite. NABE will not be requiring proof of these measures, but calls on the NABE community to act responsibly and with consideration for the health and safety of others.

In addition, NABE understands that conference attendees may want to be assured of access to women’s healthcare services in a conference location, should an emergency arise. The district attorney of Dallas County (along with many other DAs around the country) has indicated that he will not criminalize reproductive health decisions or use the resources of his office to enforce laws that restrict access to health care. We cannot guarantee access to care but will commit to working with any conference participant should an emergency arise including arranging travel should that be required.
