January 2021 GLAA Seminar Cancellation

The GLAA Board has made the difficult decision to cancel the annual winter seminar due to the risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the board will continue to monitor CDC recommendations and assess the feasibility of holding an educational seminar later in 2021.

2021 GLAA Membership Dues Waiver

Taking into consideration the cancellations of shows, seminars and sponsorships this year, the board has unanimously decided to waive the membership dues in 2021 for active GLAA members.  Active members in 2020 will see their membership extended through 2021.

Also, anyone can join GLAA before December 31, 2020 for $25.  You will then be active for 2020 and have your membership extended through 2021!  And yes, inactive members are eligible for this option.  (An annual membership is normally $50.)  Join us here!!
