SPSSI leaders have expanded conference waiver programs in honor of the organization's 85th Anniversary this year, in an effort to give members greater access to programming. We have nearly doubled the number of recipients that will be granted waivers to attend the 2021 conference free of charge! Please share the below opportunities widely, and encourage those interested in financial relief to apply today. Exclusions: Applicants are able to submit to more than one program. However, no more than one type of waiver will be awarded to an individual.
The application deadline for all virtual conference waivers is June 15, 2021.
