The FLA, in conjunction with the Westin Times Square, are taking steps to make attendance at the Conference as safe as reasonably possible. It is imperative that all attendees of the Conference strictly comply with all laws, regulations, and policies of the Westin Times Square and the Conference relative to the Covid-19 pandemic.
