National Convention

This year, UGA AMSA will be returning to the National Convention in Washington DC for our third trip! The conference starts on the night of Thursday, March 7th. The conference then continues for two full days on Friday, March 8th and Saturday, March 9th. UGA AMSA will then spend Sunday and most of Monday sightseeing in Washington, DC and we will fly back Monday afternoon. Below is a tentative itinerary for the National Convention, but it will be subject to change until we have a final headcount and we can make our reservations. Our plan is to take 15 members. The cost of the trip will be $225 and this will include everything except meals in Washington, DC. This means we will be covering the cost of conference registration ($199), flights to and from Washington, DC, and hotels in Washington, DC. Lunch will be provided at the conference on Friday and Saturday.
