5. Why Go Fragrance-Free?
To maintain a welcoming and accessible environment for all attendees, we encourage you to refrain from wearing scented products (such as perfumes/colognes), clothing with strong detergent scents, fragrant personal care products, etc., as these can trigger serious health issues for those with fragrance allergies. A fragrance-free seating section will be available in each session room. Thank you for your consideration for all members of our community!
