Convention 2019

UPDATE

Registration for the SGGEE convention in August is now open. For the first time, you'll be able to register AND pay using an online form and the SGGEE PayPal page. Please read through the instructions when you open the form and before you begin. They tell you not only how to register but also what to expect. Any questions or problems should be emailed to the convention address in the form.

We encourage you to use the online form and payment for your convenience; it also saves us hours of volunteer time in processing your registration. If you still prefer to pay with a check, the instructions to do so are included on the form; note that your registration and payment may take up to 3 weeks to be received and processed.
