Creating Trauma Sensitive Schools Conference

February 24 @ 8:00 AM - February 25 @ 5:00 PM


The Attachment and Trauma Network (“ATN”) continues to monitor policies and procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic as well as any other community-wide health issues. The safety of our attendees, staff, speakers, and volunteers at our 2022 CTSS Conference is our top priority. We are following guidance of federal, state, and local agencies to implement best practices aimed at managing the spread of the virus.

Given the desire of ATN’s Board of Directors to keep everyone as safe as possible, ALL attendees of the 2022 in-person conference must be fully vaccinated–including attendees, presenters, exhibitors, staff, volunteers, and sponsors. Registered conference attendees, staff and volunteers will receive information on how to verify their vaccination status using a free, simple, secure, and HIPAA-compliant third-party vendor. Fully vaccinated, for the purpose of this policy, is defined as receiving two doses of either Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or one dose of Johnson & Johnson. Additionally, we recommend that all attendees eligible for booster vaccines receive one prior to the conference; however, at this time, boosters will not be required to attend.

We recognize that vaccination is a personal choice and for some not medically advised. We also recognize that for some being in large crowds can feel too overwhelming right now. This is why we are offering the Virtual Portion of our conference on February 24 & 25, 2022. We urge those who can not attend the In-Person Conference to consider the Virtual option.

In addition to the vaccine requirement, we will be requiring that all attendees, presenters, exhibitors, staff, volunteers and sponsors at the In-Person Portion of the conference wear masks in all sessions, the exhibit hall, and common conference areas. We are considering additional safety measures as part of our onsite mitigation plan. Conclusive decisions on these will be made closer to the conference date in February. These considerations include social distancing, color-coded systems to show personal social distance comfort, etc. We continue to monitor and evaluate the outlook for in-person events and will share updates as they are available. We will post more information about what you can expect onsite as we get closer to our event dates.

ATN will have measures in place to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus; however, ATN, under no circumstances, is able to guarantee that you or a guest will not become infected with the virus or any other community spreading illness while in attendance at the 2022 CTSS Conference.

Adherence to ATN In-Person event policies and guidelines will be monitored and enforced. If for any reason, you do not feel you will be able to comply with ATN’s policies, please consider our Virtual Conference.

Purchasing an In-Person Conference and/or a Pre-Con ticket confirms you understand and agree to abide by all of the above.

This policy was approved by Board of Directors on December 8, 2021.

How does an “asynchronous” In-Person/Virtual Conference Work?

Because we had so many previous attendees express the wish to attend this conference in-person, and just as many expressing interest in attending virtually, the most practical solution we could devise was to have two portions to the conference — one In-Person in Houston, TX, Feb 20-22, 2022. And one Virtual – Feb 24-25, 2022. There are several benefits to this asynchronous conference:

It’s really TWO conferences on Creating Trauma Sensitive Schools in one. The agendas, keynotes, and workshops are completely different.

With a “gap day” of Wed, Feb 23, it is possible to attend BOTH. Attendees can come to Houston then travel home on Wednesday and join us virtually on Thursday & Friday. Or you can access the virtual portion of the conference for up to 90 days afterwards.

You have options — given the unknown nature of the pandemic, it’s good to know that you have a choice of how to attend this important conference.

Pricing has been structured to make it affordable to attend either in-person or virtual…with a special discount for those attending BOTH.

Purchase Orders- important information

ATN invites schools and other institutions to reach out to us regarding purchase orders.

We strongly prefer prepayment of purchase orders.

If your institution cannot prepay on a purchase order (have full payment made, with cash/check/card) prior to the Conference, please contact us and let us know that. We can then determine whether we can accept your purchase order.

If any portion of the Conference fills to capacity, preference will be given to fully paid Purchase Orders over post-event payments.

UPDATE YOUR VENDOR RECORDS- ATN has a new address for remittances. This was used last year but many school systems did not update our information in their records. We cannot be responsible for payments sent to any address besides the one below. We will only receive payments sent to this address.
