Why Attend

A Message from the SGNA President

Dear SGNA Community,

In recent weeks, SGNA shared a message that the Board of Directors was closely monitoring the developing situation regarding the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), with a focus on the safety and well-being of not only our attendees, event sponsors and exhibitors, but also your patients, colleagues and communities.

The SGNA Board of Directors is now pleased to announce that we are able to postpone the 47th Annual Course to November 1-3 (with pre-meeting events October 30-31) in Louisville, KY.

In light of the rapidly evolving public health situation, member feedback and the potential negative impacts on each of your communities, the board determined this decision is in the best interest of all involved.

We recognize the Annual Course provides the opportunity for our community to access relevant education on topics critical to patient care, such as disease, infection prevention and endoscopic reprocessing, while earning contact hours essential for achieving and maintaining certifications, and were committed to finding a solution this year that allowed you to achieve those objectives.

If you have already registered for the 47th Annual Course, we will transfer your registration to the new event dates.

And, if you have reserved a room within the SGNA Annual Course discounted room block, your reservation will automatically be cancelled by the hotel and you will receive a confirmation soon for this. If you had reserved a room at the Omni Louisville, you may have already received this cancellation. Be sure to contact your airline or travel agency to reschedule your flight(s) to Louisville, KY.

If you have not yet registered for the 47th Annual Course, registration will re-open later this summer.

Should you have additional questions, please feel free to reach out to SGNA Headquarters at info@sgna.org or 800.245.7462, in Illinois - 312.321.5165.

Kind regards,

Lea Anne Myers, MSN RN CGRN
SGNA 2019-2020 President
