Due to the continued impacts of COVID-19, the SAA Board of Directors has voted to conduct the 2021 Annual Meeting in an all-virtual format therefore we will not host excursions. We are excited to welcome a more diverse and global community to the Annual Meeting. We hope to see you online in April!
Registration for excursions must occur during Advance Registration. If a guest is accompanying a registered attendee on an excursion, the guest must be registered (as a guest) and must also purchase an excursion ticket. Attendees may be accompanied only by adult guests on the excursions.
In order for an excursion to go forward, the bus must be filled during the advance registration process. Please sign up soon!
All participants in SAA excursions will be required to sign a release of claims prior to boarding the bus. No participant will be able to board without a completed release of claims form. The forms will be in your registration packet as well as available from staff at the time you board. A sample form is included here for your information.
Workshops and excursion fees are non-refundable. In the event SAA cancels a workshop or excursion from undersubscription, the SAA office will not charge a processing fee and will refund the money in the same form of payment received (such as a credit card payment will be refunded with a credit back to the account.)
