SGAA Conference

Excelsior Springs, MO — June 9 – 11, 2014: The Stained Glass Association of America is proud to announce that the 105th Annual Summer Conference will be, for the first time, the SGAA Artists’ Retreat at the Elms Hotel and Spa. The park-like grounds and the serenity of the atmosphere at the Elms is perfect for an artists’ retreat. The SGAA has received a special room rate of only $119 per night, single or double. The Retreat registration rate will be $225. Register before January 1, 2014, and be automatically entered to win a case of glass from Uroboros at the Portland 2015 conference.

The SGAA Artists’ Retreat will include more hands-on, interactive and contemplative programs with time for reflection and sharing of art and theory. But the business-minded will not be left out. We are planning workshops on both Committee Psychology and Restoration.

The Conference Committee is also working with the Stained Glass School to provide workshops during the conference rather than prior to the conference. This plan is to allow attendees to save on travel and hotel expense while still being able to attend School workshops.

The Annual Summer Conference tour will be optional this year, taking place on June 12, and will include a tour of churches, historic buildings and homes, and some of the local wineries.
