The well-being of our attendees and staff is a top priority for The Heritage Foundation. We are carefully monitoring the ever changing conditions of the Coronavirus pandemic and are committed to ensuring that appropriate health and safety measures are in place at the 2021 Resource Bank Meeting. 

If you are not able to travel to Austin, don't worry - you won't miss out! We will have robust virtual options available so you can still be a part of the conversation!

Registration for the 2021 Resource Bank Meeting is $450 for on-site participation. Guests who register by Friday, April 9, will receive an early bird rate of $400 to attend. Virtual participation for the meeting is $100.

In observance of the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort & Spa's adherence to federal, state, and local Bastrop County guidance and orders related to COVID-19, as well as the hotel's corporate requirements and protocols aimed at maintaining high standards of cleanliness and service, attendees can expect the following measures to be in place onsite at the time of the event, subject to change:

 

  • Proper spacing, contactless measures, and cleanliness standards maintained throughout the resort and within function setups.
  • Face coverings that cover the mouth and nose at all times while on premises at this event (indoors and outdoors), unless eating or drinking, or speaking/presenting within the event program.
  • Social distancing.

No, you are not required to be tested or vaccinated in order to attend. As proponents of personal responsibility, we ask that you monitor your health leading up to the event.

The Heritage team is committed to keeping you safe and comfortable when gathering with others. To ensure everyone is following the recommended guidelines, we will have a designated facilitator responsible for ensuring these guidelines are taken seriously. Hotel staff will also be monitoring for compliance.

Should you feel sick or fear that you may have been exposed to COVID-19 before or while traveling to the meeting, we ask that you discontinue your in-person participation in the event and alert a Heritage representative via email or phone. If necessary, quarantine measures within your hotel guest room should be discussed with the hotel directly. We will gladly convert your in-person registration to virtual access, or refund your entire registration fee if you are not well enough to participate virtually.

We are excited to incorporate more interactive formats to the Resource Bank sessions this year. Breakout sessions especially will feature increased opportunities for discussion and participation.

As we get closer to the event, we will release a new Event Hub tab on this website that will serve as your "home base" for all content. Here, you can access live plenary sessions, participate in Q&A, join virtual-only breakouts and conversation starter groups, view on-demand content, or chat with other attendees! More details will be released in May, so keep an eye for that email.

Yes! Please contact our Special Events team at specialevents@heritage.org or (202) 608-1524 and we can update your registration.

We are excited about the opportunities a hybrid format offers to allow more leaders to participate in the Resource Bank Meeting. In order to facilitate social distancing, we will not be able to host as many onsite participants as we have in years past, but we encourage you to invite junior staff, colleagues, or other contacts in your network to join us virtually. If they are interested, please have them contact ResourceBank@heritage.org to be added to our invite list.
