We’re excited to be back for our in-person Winter Institute event!


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 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.
As health and safety precautions are still fluid, we will continue to monitor and make changes as necessary. Watch this space for updates regarding on-site policies and precautions as we get closer to the 2022 Winter Institute.
Due to COVID-related issues such as government mandates and social distancing, ABA has made the difficult decision to limit our attendance to North American attendees for Wi2022. We will miss our international colleagues. We hope some of you will be able to join us (or watch recordings from) Snow Days, our virtual follow-up event to Wi this year for those who are not able to attend.
