The health and well being of our members are our number one priority and given the global pandemic status of COVID-19, the SSAA has made the decision for the 2020 Convention to be postponed to March 2021.

Due to the postponement, the SSAA Awards for Excellence will be moved to align with our upcoming Convention.

A new 2021 Awards for Excellence nomination package including key dates such as when nominations will be re-opened, the closing date and announcement of finalists will be available online in the new package on the SSAA website members portal in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

I appreciate your understanding and more so now I encourage you to participate, showcase and celebrate your achievements through the SSAA Awards for Excellence once we get through this challenging time.

My thoughts are with all of you and hope that you stay well and safe. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your membership. Please do not hesitate to contact me at
