Annual Meeting

The SNS Executive Committee has determined it is in the best interests of our members and their families to cancel the 2021 meeting. This is a very difficult decision as we know how much everyone looks forward to and values this meeting each year!

At this time we do not plan on hosting a virtual event, but look forward to a bigger and better meeting in 2022.  We will notify you with that date and location as soon as we have it confirmed.
