Why Attend

With the continued public health threat presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, SGNA’s Board of Directors has determined the safest way to bring our community together this spring is through a virtual event. SGNA will host the 48th Annual Course: A Virtual Experience May 22-25, 2021, with pre-meeting events May 21-22, through the same platform we used in fall 2020. Please visit these frequently asked questions for more information.
