* 2. Acknowledgment


I hereby acknowledge that it is my personal and voluntary decision to return to in-person meetings at my Chapter rather than utilize BNI online as an alternative method of attending the Chapter Meeting.  I understand, and freely assume, any and all risks of returning to in-person meetings.

I further acknowledge that I am not symptomatic for COVID-19, and to the extent that I have been tested for COVID-19, I did not test positive for the virus. Furthermore, I am not considered a high- risk person to contract, and have complications from, the COVID-19 disease, due to my age and/or lack of underlying medical conditions as set forth in Exhibit 2. Moreover, if at any time I become symptomatic for COVID-19, I will immediately notify my Chapter President to enable my Chapter to participate in any contact-tracing that the local jurisdiction may require. I will discontinue attending in-person meetings at my Chapter for at least 14 days after self-imposed quarantine. In order to attend these in-person meetings I will follow and comply with all directives that the Chapter President may require including, but not limited to, wearing face coverings, maintaining social distancing of at least 6ft from any other Chapter attendee or participant, and take sanitation steps. I further acknowledge that it is my responsibility to review and comply with any government, state, or local directives, advisories, warnings, or any other information regarding COVID-19 and which are directed to individuals, and based on those guidelines, I freely assume any and all risks which may accompany those guidelines and/or directives.

I further acknowledge that while BNI has taken all reasonable and appropriate steps to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 being transmitted at the BNI Chapter Meeting, BNI cannot prevent me from becoming exposed to, contracting, or spreading COVID-19 as a result of attending an in-person BNI Chapter Meeting. Therefore, by choosing  to attend the BNI Chapter Meeting I understand that I may be exposing myself to and/or increasing my risk of contracting and/or spreading COVID-19.

I further acknowledge that I also have a personal responsibility to act in compliance with the guidelines as set forth above in the “Stop the Spread” section of this Acknowledgement.  Any decision I make to act in derogation of those guidelines is my own choice. I expressly assume the risk of contracting and/or spreading COVID-19 as a result of my failure to adhere to BNI’s rules, CDC guidelines, and state and local law.
