With a mandate from the Council and the membership at large to experiment with new ideas, SAA is shaking things up for its 79th Annual Meeting in Cleveland!

But changes in the program development process also are in the works. Read the full call here. The deadline for proposals is 11:59 pm on Wednesday, October 8. Proposals received after that time cannot be considered.
