Convention 2021


While Sigma currently plans to host an in-person as well as virtual 2021 Biennial Convention, we are working with our venue partners and state and local departments of health as we consider multiple contingencies for the event. We will make a final determination and announce our detailed plan no later than Monday, 20 September. To prevent any negative financial impact to attendees, we have extended the early registration deadline to Wednesday, 29 September 2021.
