About Registration

2023 Conference Early Registration Is Open

Participants wishing to attend the 2023 SGS 44th Annual Meeting and Conference, including those individuals who are involved in presenting a session at the conference, are required to register and pay the registration fee for the conference.

In order to register for the SGS Annual Meeting & Conference, you must have a SGS account. If you are not a member of SGS or do not already have an account, you will need to create a free membership. Please visit our Membership Page for more information. SGS members receive a significant discount on their conference registration as well as many other benefits. If you have any problems creating your account or logging in to a previous account, please email Amanda James at

We offer a number of different registration options including one day rates, discounted rates for students and retirees, and companion passes. We also offer an early bird discount if you register before 11:59 Eastern Time on March 3, 2023.

Agencies or organizations sending 5+ attendees qualify for a 10% conference discount. To receive your discount, please email for instructions. Please do not complete the registration until you have received further instructions.

If you are an SGS member in the “Encore” membership category and have maintained at least five (5) years of SGS membership, we encourage you to apply for a travel grant to help offset the cost of attending the SGS Annual Meeting & Conference. The amount of the grant will be determined by the SGS Executive Committee and may be split amongst more than one applicant. Winners will remain anonymous. Learn more and apply here.

All cancellations must be received in writing via email to by March 10th. If received by March 10th, there is a $30 cancellation fee. After March 10th, no refunds will be granted.

If you prefer to register by mail please download the registration form, fill it out in full, and mail to our SGS Executive Director. Instructions included.
