In the abundance of caution, the Association of African American Museums (AAAM) has created the following guidance as it pertains to COVID-19:

AAAM is taking these measures to assure the 2023 Annual Meeting is as safe as possible:


Do I need to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and wear a mask to attend #AAAM2023?
Masks are still highly encouraged; however, they are not mandatory.  At this time, the Grand Hyatt, and other local businesses in Nashville, TN have lifted their COVID vaccination requirement. Therefore, attendees will not be asked to show proof of vaccination or negative COVID tests upon entry. Should this policy change, we will notify attendees immediately.
  • If you have a positive test or are not feeling well prior to your arrival in Nashville, please inform the AAAM Team at so we may make arrangements for your registration.  We ask that you reduce the risk to others and plan to attend the virtual conference only.
