You must be a current member of SAQA to register. If you are not a current member, please join at before registering for the conference. Membership fees are:

$25 Mailed registration fee.  We can accept mailed registrations, but an additional $25 processing fee will be assessed. Online registration (no charge) is encouraged.

Friday evening 25th Anniversary Dinner Extravaganza:  We’re offering a prime rib carving station, pasta bar, crab cakes, spanokopita, chicken satay, smoked salmon mousse, mozzarella and cherry tomato kabobs, and more!  Plus fun decor, a no-host bar, and an fantastic instrumental musical duo playing during dinner.  All of this for only $35 per person -- a steal anywhere, but especially in terms of Washington DC prices! Sign-up below.

After dinner, all conference registrants may join us for our Spotlight Silent Auction (back by popular demand) and a Sweet Temptations dessert buffet.

Two optional sessions, Critique with Sandra Sider, and Voice Coaching with Leni Wiener, require an added fee of $20/$30.  Please refer to the conference program for details.
