2018 Annual Meeting

SNS 2018 Update

Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with our colleagues and friends in Puerto Rico as they start the long process of rebuilding. As The Ritz-Carlton did not sustain any major damage, we are advised that group business in San Juan and vicinity will likely be resuming in December, or January at the latest. Our local contacts assure us that they can still provide a full program of tours and activities for our group in late February.

The Executive Council feels strongly that we should continue with our meeting in San Juan, as a way of showing our support and providing business to help the island rebuild. We are only waiting on the formal "all clear" from the Ritz corporate assessment team regarding the island's infrastructure, which we should have by mid-October. In the meantime, please continue to save the date and submit your abstracts for the November 13th deadline. We look forward to seeing you in Puerto Rico in February!
