As a financial incentive for the members to attend the 2022 conference, the S.I.T. Executive  committee decided that conference registration fees will be reduced by $450.00 for a member attending the conference who is associated to an S.I.T. corporate member in good standing.  The committee established that there will be a limitation of one member per corporate member.  This conference fee reduction may not be combined with other registration fee reductions available to first time attendees, first authors, symposium panelists, or graduate students as defined in the SIT policies or bylaws.
