Apply for Membership


If you have limited mobility and require assistance getting back and forth between your hotel and the Sonesta (SEJ’s conference center/hotel), please indicate that when registering online (not yet available). SEJ will arrange a small shuttle for attendees with special needs. Please let us know two weeks in advance if you have a disability that requires special arrangements in order to participate.



Please be aware that if you register after March 9, it’s likely that special-diet meals will not be available.

All catering is arranged in advance, with final catering numbers given to the hotel at least seven days before the event so the hotel can order the necessary food. We always order extra special-diet meals, but these are given out on a first-come first-served basis. If you have severe restrictions and are registering after March 9, please email sej@sej.org.

SEJ will make every effort to accommodate special diatery needs. However, we can’t guarantee that your needs will be met for every meal. Please approach all meals with your usual caution.



If you cancel your registration in writing to sej@sej.org by March 9, you’ll receive a full refund. Nonattendance does not constitute cancellation. Substitutions may be made. Attendees who fail to abide by SEJ’s COVID-19 policy will not be eligible for a refund. If you receive a positive COVID-19 test within 10 days of the conference, you should not attend #SEJ2022 and a full refund will be provided. Please contact us at sej@sej.org.
