Check Payment

To pay by check after registering online, follow the registration steps and select "Send me an invoice" to receive an invoice that you may mail in with your check payment.

Onsite Registration

We strongly encourage you to pre-register and to do so early. If you plan to register when you arrive in Portland, please allow up to 45 minutes for this process. 

Guest Registration

Guests may purchase tickets to attend Annual Course social events. For safety reasons, guests under the age of 16 are not allowed in the Exhibit Hall at any time.

Order Confirmation

You will receive an order confirmation by email when you register online. Check this order confirmation carefully to see whether your registration fee is paid or has a balance due. If you select the “Send Me an Invoice” option when registering online and mail in a check you can see whether check payment has been processed by logging into your “SGNA Portal” and looking at the “My Account” section.

You will receive a registration confirmation by email when you register online. This email will contain important details about the Annual Course in Portland including the housing link to receive discounted rates.

Cancellation Policy

All cancellation requests must be sent to SGNA in writing and will be processed after the Annual Course. Cancellations must be received prior to March 22, 2019. All refunds are subject to a $100 processing fee. No refunds will be issued for cancellations received after March 22, 2019. No refunds will be issued for missed sessions, including sessions missed due to travel delays.

Optional Sessions

If you registered and paid for a Friday or Saturday Optional Session, these sessions will be listed on the back of your registration badge. Sign-up for these sessions will be on a first-come, first-served basis. You will print your badge at the registration counter when you arrive in Portland.

Changes to Existing Registrations

It is not necessary to contact SGNA if you decide to attend a different concurrent session. Now you can make concurrent session changes directly in your agenda builder. If you need to make a change to your optional session registration, please contact SGNA. 

Annual Course Mobile App

This quick and easy tool gives you the opportunity to select your sessions and manage your concurrent session selection and social events. Concurrent session selections are used for room planning purposes only. Seating at concurrent sessions is on a first-come, first-served basis until room capacity is reached so it’s important to get to the session early. Adding a particular concurrent session to your agenda builder does not reserve or guarantee you a seat. Please keep in mind that this tool is for planning purposes only, so you may want to choose back-up sessions should your first choice reach capacity.

Valid Methods of Payment

Acceptable methods of payment are Check, Money Order, Cash, MasterCard, Visa, and American Express.

Member Discount

To receive member rates, your 2018 membership dues must be paid in full. To become an SGNA member, join online at or call 800.245.SGNA (7462).
