The convention will proceed as planned unless circumstances beyond our control dictate a postponement or cancellation; for example, if quarantines or travel restrictions are imposed which make the convention impossible to operate; or if responsible medical authorities advise voluntary restrictions on travel or social gatherings in the area of the convention; or if it appears to the SCNA Board that holding the convention as scheduled might present an unwarranted risk to human health.

We will make every effort to contact SOC attendees if the status of the convention changes. Check  for any status updates.
