***Interim Flex Credit Guidelines***
This interim policy will be in effect until June 30, 2021. United Way Worldwide is neither hosting nor attending in-person gatherings at this time. Although this decision was made to protect the health of network staff and partners, we recognize the importance for staff to safely continue their professional development so they may better serve their communities. To this end, we have issued interim flex credit guidelines that will remain in effect for the foreseeable future. United Ways may use flex credits to cover registration fees for in-person, virtual and hybrid training events. In order to minimize the risks associated with gatherings and travel during this pandemic, flex credits can be used for registration fees, but cannot be applied to travel and per diem. For an event to qualify for flex credit registration reimbursement, it must not only meet eligibility criteria established in United Way Worldwide’s flex credit policy, but also comply with local, state, and/or federal safety protocols, including any gathering limits/bans. Those who plan to attend an in-person event are encouraged to maintain social distance, wear personal protective equipment such as masks and gloves, and wash their hands frequently.
Current health and safety recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) can be found here. You may also refer to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) website for additional guidance and Georgia Tech’s COVID-19 Event Risk Assessment Planning Tool for the estimated risk of COVID-19 exposure while attending an in-person event.
