Coronavirus (COVID-19) Advisory

Updated July 26, 2021: 

Network of Executive Women takes the safety of our community very seriously. We have made the determination that NEW HQ Conferences, Executive Forum and Leadership Summit, will be held as virtual experiences in 2021.  NEW HQ Learning Programs will also be executed virtually for the remainder of 2021.   

NEW will continue to review and update this policy as new information regarding Covid-19 is made available and reserves the right to adjust any previously communicated advisory, protocols and procedures.  

Given the uncertainty in the Covid environment in the US and Canada, NEW strongly discourages large group gatherings in person.  However, we do appreciate that many local areas have opened in various stages, and some of our Regional Communities have expressed interest in exploring in-person options.   

As such, NEW has established a protocol that will include the following to ensure any event or NEW group gatherings are safe:  

  1. Regional group submits a registration setup request for an in-person event 

  1. NEW HQ will set up 1:1 discussion with Regional group to outline safety protocols and procedures to follow to include Release and Waiver of Claims Statement, Covid-19 Self-Screening Questionnaire and Declaration acknowledgment, and on premise venue capacity. 

  1. Once safety precautions have been verified and approved, the Regional event will be opened for registration and be marked as “in person” on the NEW event calendar. 

For more information, please refer to: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).  

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide updates on this page ( If you have any questions, please email us at
