Registration

Please note: All participants at the in-person conference—presenters, attendees, exhibitors, staff members, guests, and vendors—will be required to be fully vaccinated (as defined by the CDC) at least 14 days prior to the start of the meeting. In addition to a vaccination mandate for attendees, we will follow all federal, state, and local government and venue requirements for masks, social distancing, and other measures. Further policies can be found on the Conference Policies page.

During the registration process, you will be asked to create a new account or sign in to an existing account. If you were a GSA member or attended a GSA conference in the last seven years, you already have a GSA account and should use the “forgot your password” option.

Registration is currently open. Register by January 18, 2022 to receive Early Registration pricing.
For those who are unable to attend the in-person meeting, #Dros22 offers the option to register for virtual attendance.
