Covid-19 Policies

The North Carolina Center for Nonprofits is committed to providing a safe, healthy, and accessible event. Below are the COVID-19 health and safety protocols for our 2022 Conference.

We plan to adhere to any protocols and requirements set forth by the Durham Convention Center and the City of Durham.

We will provide masks to any participant who would like one. Hand sanitizer will also be widely available.

We strongly encourage all participants to take a COVID-19 test each morning before attending the conference and to stay home if they test positive. If you test positive for COVID-19 on any morning of the conference or within five days prior to the conference, the Center will refund your registration fee.

We will also offer silicone wrist bands to visually communicate comfort levels with interaction.

  • Green = Comfort with handshakes and conversations within 6 feet
  • Yellow = Comfort with conversations 6 feet apart
  • Red = Not comfortable with conversations without both parties masked

If you are not feeling well, please stay home. Your registration fee will be refunded to you.

The Center encourages everyone to get vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19. You can schedule your vaccination appointment here:
