Registration Fees for the 2017 Annual Meeting

It’s not too early to begin planning your participation in the SSSP 2017 Annual Meeting.

Registration is open: http://www.sssp1.org/index.cfm/m/696/fuseaction/ssspconf.portal. In addition to all of the exciting sessions, panel discussions, and events, we are pleased to offer optional One-Day Workshops: http://www.sssp1.org/index.cfm/m/700/Optional_One-Day_Workshops/.

All program participants (except individuals from community, labor, and comparable organizations working on social problems or social justice issues who have been invited to serve on a panel or to make a presentation) must be current members of the Society (you may join upon acceptance of your presentation) and must register (paying the guest registration fee is not acceptable for program participants) for the Annual Meeting by June 1, 2017. Persons failing to register by June 1 will have their presentations deleted from the Final Program.

All exemption requests must be submitted by May 15. Exemptions from paying registration fees will be considered for:

  • Non-students who are unemployed and/or receiving monthly financial assistance to meet living expenses may request a waiver of registration fees to participate in the program;

  • Individuals from community, labor, and comparable organizations working on social problems or social justice issues who have been invited to serve on a panel or to make a presentation;

  • Non-U.S. and non-Canadian scholars who are from less advantaged countries;

  • Co-authors of papers who will not be attending the meeting. One of the co-authors must be a paid registrant. Both co-authors must pay if both expect to attend the meeting; or

  • Persons excused by direct request of the Program Committee Chair.

Refund Policy. Registration fees will be refunded to persons who notify the Administrative Office prior to July 15. Once the Final Program is printed and participant packets have been prepared, the cost of processing the participant has occurred. Unfortunately, under no circumstances will SSSP issue refunds for no-shows.

Airfare. For an airfare estimate, browse the internet or call your local travel agent or preferred airline for current fare quotes.

Housing. The 2017 Annual Meeting will be held at the Montreal Bonaventure Hotel. Our single/double room rate of $189 (CAD) includes complimentary internet in your guest room. Please request the SSSP group room rate when booking a room to ensure the correct discount is given (based on availability). Our group block code is: CSOCII. Reservations made after July 15th or after the room block is filled are subject to availability and rate increase. For reservation information, visit: http://www.sssp1.org/index.cfm/m/695/Hotel_Reservation_Information/.

Meals. You will find some restaurants and fine cuisine options in Montreal’s historic downtown district (“Old Port”), but a quick trip up Rue Saint-Urbain to the nearby China Town or a small walk to Rue Ste. Catherine will provide many more varied and affordable options.
