USET is committed to the overall safety and well-being of all of its meeting attendees. Recognizing the ongoing evolving realities of the COVID-19 pandemic, any in-person meeting/event plans will be executed in accordance with recommended public health protocols. As a reminder, the USET Tribal Epidemiology Center (TEC), a recognized public health authority, will ultimately provide USET with guidance and recommendations about any in-person USET meeting/event plans to ensure that our actions are in the best interests of the USET/USET SPF organization, its membership, and meeting attendees. Based on the USET TEC’s decision, it may be required to shift the event from in-person/hybrid to fully virtual and should this action be taken, proper notice will be provided.
