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, 2019.  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:

  • Persons excused by direct request of the Program Chair.

Refund PolicyRegistration 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.
