SGS Conference Registration

2022 Attendance & Registration

In order to register to attend the 2022 SGS Conference, it is necessary to construct a login profile through our membership software program. Once that profile is complete and the user is logged in, the registration ticketing will be visible.

While we encourage all to consider joining SGS as a dues paying member, we do offer a number of free membership levels that will allow SGS and all other attendees to register for the conference. Free membership categories do not include any membership benefits or conference discounts.

Learn more about free memberships.


Registration Guidelines:

Participants wishing to attend the Annual Conference, including those individuals who are involved in presenting a session at the Annual Conference, are required to register and pay the registration fee for the conference.

  • Conference attendees, presenters, and any guest panelists must register

When a participant submits a proposal and it is accepted, they make a commitment to be available in Panama City Beach, Florida, between April 5 & April 9, 2022, and to present at the time designated.

If your session includes individuals that are presenting remotely, please contact Amanda James at admin@southerngerontologicalsociety.org to determine if registration is required.

Annual Conference Attendance & COVID-19

SGS remains committed to providing an in-person Annual Meeting & Conference in 2022. We will continue to monitor COVID-19 conditions and will be adding safety protocols as needed to ensure the safety and comfort of our attendees.

At this time, SGS will require proof of vaccination or proof or a negative test result from a COVID-19 test obtained within three days of arrival at the conference venue to attend.

Additional safety protocols such as indoor mask requirements, social distancing, and others are being considered and this page will be updated as protocols are decided. If conditions prevent SGS from being able to provide a safe conference experience and the conference is canceled, all attendees, sponsors, and exhibitors will be given options which will include a full refund.

Please Note: SGS is not responsible for transportation, lodging, or any other associated expenses for program participants. Students are encouraged to consider submitting an abstract for considerations for either paper, poster, or workshop sessions AND to submit an application to be considered for one of the many awards, or scholarships that SGS has to offer.


2022 Conference registration is now open. Early Bird rates apply through March 1, 2022.

2022 REFUND POLICY

SGS will implement a flexible refund policy for attendees this year. If you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, have had exposure to COVID-19, or are simply uncomfortable traveling or attending, SGS will offer a full refund of your registration with notice. Please note that refunds will not be provided without notice. Notice can be provided by emailing Amanda James at admin@southerngerontologicalsociety.org. Refunds will not be provided for registrants who do not comply with the proof of vaccination/negative COVID-19 test requirement.

If you have any questions or need to make alternative payment arrangements, contact the conference organizers at (866) 920-4660 or by emailing admin@southerngerontologicalsociety.org.
