SGS Meeting Registration Info

Attendance & Registration

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

Registration is required of all:

  • Conference attendees
  • Presenters
  • Discussion leaders
  • Chairpersons
  • Panel or debate members
  • Exhibitors
  • All other participants connected with papers, posters, symposia, or workshops.

When a participant submits a proposal and it is accepted, he or she makes a commitment to be available in Lake Lanier, Georgia between April 11th & April 14th, 2018, and to present at the time designated.


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.

Conference Registration Will Open October 1, 2017

Special Aids

Participants who require special aids or services identified in the Americans with Disabilities Act please contact Lee Ann Ferguson at the SGS office at (866) 920-4660 or send her an email message at admin@southerngerontologicalsociety.org.

To ensure that we may accommodate these needs, SGS must receive notification by February 18, 2018.

Registration Fees

The registration fee includes all of the conference activities and the cost of all meals and refreshments as listed in the final program. Should meeting attendees wish to bring their guests, who are not attending the full conference, to special events, this registration form will permit the purchase of additional tickets for those events.

Pre-conference and post-conference events are ticketed separately and are not included in the conference registration fee.

  • Organizational and corporate members may register up to three persons at member rates.
  • Shared registrations are not permitted.
  • For an additional fee of $10.00 each registrant may obtain a "Certificate of Attendance" documenting conference attendance. Most professional organizations and licensing agencies will accept a "Certificate of Attendance" for continuing education credit, but we highly recommend that you confirm that your affiliated organization does.
  • CEUs may be offered for this conference. Please be sure to be included in our email list in order to receive important announcements about earning CEU hours during this conference.
