COVID-19 Safety Precautions

We are moving forward with our plans to host Spring Institute for Youth Services in person in Mt. Pleasant with additional safety precautions in place. We are continuing to monitor and follow all current requirements related to COVID-19 from the CDC, State of Michigan, and the hotel venue in order to provide the safest environment for our attendees and will adjust our plans and health protocols as necessary.

Please note that all attendees, exhibitors, partners and staff will be required to show either proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 PCR or rapid test result within 72 hours of the first day of the event and everyone will be required to wear a mask indoors regardless of vaccination status. Review the Spring Institute COVID-19 information here to learn more about current safety measures and requirements. If you have questions or concerns, contact MLA at [email protected].

Thank you to our Sponsors and Exhibitors!
