Who can present a paper?

Only current SSA members will be allowed to present papers at the annual meeting. Members and co-authors will be allowed to discuss and/or close the discussion. Up to fourteen (14) non-members may be granted permission to present a paper and will be chosen by the Program Committee immediately following abstract selections for the final program. Non-member presenter status will not be granted for trainees (students/ residents/ research or clinical fellows). However, any non-member, including a trainee, may close the paper.
