National Convention


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the in-person 2020 National Convention previously scheduled for May 22nd to 24th, 2020 in Dallas, TX has been canceled. We will have a virtual annual general assembly on May 23rd, 2020 via Zoom to discuss SOBA America business. We apologize for the inconvenience. The safety of SOBANS and their families comes first and is the reason why it was necessary to cancel the convention.
