SWS 2022 Winter Meeting Rescheduled to March 31-April 3 in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico

Thank you for your patience while we worked out how to handle the challenge posed by the Omicron wave. We appreciate all the kind and supportive emails we’ve received from so many of you as we navigate these difficult times. 

After careful consideration of our options, we have decided to keep the virtual portion of the SWS 2022 Winter Meeting hybrid program as originally scheduled (February 4-5) and reschedule the in-person portion of the meeting to March 31-April 3.  


We understand that this modification may not work for everybody who was going to present in person. You can find a draft of the updated program HERE at: https://socwomen.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/ToPost.1_13_2022.DRAFT-AS-OF-JANUARY-13-SWS-2022-WINTER-MEETING.pdf

Please email Barret Katuna at swseo.barretkatuna@outlook.com by Thursday, January 20 at 5:00 pm EST if you would like to either change the modality of your presentation to virtual or be removed from the program because you will not be able to travel to New Mexico on the new dates.

If we do not hear from you by then, we will assume you are available to present during the new scheduled in-person meeting. If you are no longer able to participate in person, we will refund your registration. Then, if you will present or attend only virtually, you will have to register yourself again and pay the virtual fees.  

Regarding your hotel reservations: The hotel room reservations that you made for the January meeting are no longer in the hotel system and you should have received a cancellation email from Hyatt. We will soon share a new hotel reservation link so you can book at the SWS discounted rate of $169 per night.  

All Open Committee meetings will be held virtually as originally scheduled this January. The Committee on Discrimination, Membership Committee, and Committee on Academic Justice already held their meetings earlier this week. Here is a quick snapshot of the Open Committee Meetings that will still be taking place later this week and next.

A final revised program will be released by January 28, 2022. Here are the updated forms for you to register: 

Virtual Registration for February 4-5, 2022 and for Live Streamed Programming from March 31-April 3, 2022:

If you register for the In-Person Meeting, you will also have access to Virtual Programming from February 4-5, 2022. 

Once again, we apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused and appreciate your understanding. 

We very much look forward to this meeting.

Best wishes,
