MARC has taken preventative measures to reduce the spread of communicable disease including, but not limited to COVID-19 (“Communicable Disease”) at its annual conference (“Event”).

However, I acknowledge that MARC cannot guarantee that I will not be exposed to or contract a Communicable Disease at the Event. Further, due to the nature of the facilities, services and programs offered at this Event, I understand that attending the Event could increase my risk of contracting a Communicable Disease.

In consideration of being allowed to participate in the Event, I, for myself and on behalf of my heirs, assigns, personal representatives and next of kin, acknowledge and agree as follows:


I have read and understood the above warning concerning COVID-19. I understand my attendance is voluntary and hereby accept the risk of being exposed to, contracting, and/or spreading COVID-19 at the MARC Conference.

I understand that this waiver means I give up my right to bring any claim based in negligence, including for personal injuries, death, disease or property losses, or any other loss, whether known or unknown, foreseen or unforeseen.
