Registration, JACC contests, vaccination, masking:

  • JACC contests will be open to students who register as JACC members on the convention website and whose colleges are JACC members.
  • Students can register/pay individually (see below) or advisers can register students and pay, and then students will need to go back in to enter vaccination information.
  • Vaccinations: Within one week of registering, attendees must individually submit proof of vaccinations on the registration website. ACP will check the documentation with the WHO.
  • Masking: Attendees will be required to wear masks in shared spaces.

Behavior Policy

  • Because JACC is not the sponsor, students will not be required to sign a JACC behavior policy (as they were in 2019 and earlier when JACC signed hotel contracts).
  • Students attending as a college activity would be accompanied by an adviser or other staff/faculty member, sign college/district field trip forms as needed and be subject to local college/district regulations. (Generally applicable if the delegation is using college funding.)
  • Alternatively, a student could attend as an independent adult not accompanied by an adviser or other staff/faculty member and without a field trip form. Note that the student could still be subject to college/district codes of conduct in certain circumstances.


On the ACP registration site, advisers/faculty/staff can register students and pay for them, or students can register/pay for themselves. Each attendee will need to go in individually to upload vaccination status.


We are planning a full roster of contests that will take place at the hotel and at locations students can reach by public transportation.


  1. Do delegations who do not stay at the hotel have to pay a higher registration fee? No.
  2. Is any food included? Continental breakfast will be served Friday and Saturday, first come, first served. We will serve finger food at our awards ceremony Saturday afternoon.
  3. Is food available nearby? Yes. The hotel is walking distance from dozens of restaurants and fast food outlets and a 7-Eleven. Hotel food is expensive; each room has a mini-fridge (not stocked).
