*Normally, we would have the Wi2022 program posted ahead of time or at registration. But COVID has delayed many parts of our event planning this year. Booksellers can anticipate that the ABA Welcome and Registration Desk will open at 7:00 am ET on Sunday, February 13; the programming will begin at 9:00 am ET and is tentatively scheduled to end on Wednesday, February 16 at 4:30 pm ET. We expect to post a preliminary schedule in the coming weeks.
 
In-person attendance at the 2022 Winter Institute or Paz & Associates Workshop is limited to individuals who are fully vaccinated for COVID-19. This means that, unfortunately, unvaccinated children can not be permitted to accompany attendees at any ABA Wi2022 events at the DECC or any of the hotels. Session recordings will be made available on BookWeb.org after the event for individuals who are not fully vaccinated, those who are unable to attend because their children are not fully vaccinated, as well as all other ABA members. All individuals are also welcome to register in early November for ABA’s virtual Snow Days event in March. ABA is researching an appropriate screening method for Wi2022, which we will share as soon as possible.
 
General refunds for the event fee will only be offered until November 15. After November 15, refunds will only be offered under the following circumstances:
  • If the participant is experiencing illness or is quarantined due to COVID exposure
  • If travel has been restricted by local or federal mandate 
  • If ABA must cancel the event
