Non-Member conference registrations come with a complimentary 1-year Full Membership to SSWAA. 

Please note: Pre-Registration will end two weeks before the conference in order to allow for proper space and meal planning. Attendees wishing to register after February 23rd (9pm EST) will need to do so On-Site (if space allows). Meal counts are due to the hotel in advance of the conference and minimal adjustments can be made to meal counts. For this reason, the Late/On-Site Rate does not guarantee meals. Early Bird Rates will be offered for 6 weeks and require payment at the time of registration (CC payment only).


Note regarding payment:  Payment is due within the registration window in order to receive that registration rate. Payment made at a later date will be subject to current registration prices. If registering with a Purchase Order, please plan in advance so that check payment is received promptly. Purchase Orders will not be accepted within 30 days of the event since this does not allow enough time for the Purchase Order to be fulfilled. Purchase Order payments not received by Friday, March 1st must be paid on site or a late fee will apply and entry may be denied. 


*Please see Purchase Order Terms and Conditions for complete details.
