Q: How are reunion locations determined?
A: Reunion locations are selected on a regional rotation around the country. Once a region is selected, the Board of Directors select cities and begin the process of soliciting "host" and volunteer groups to host the reunion in cities within the region. For example: Cities within the Mid-Atlantic Region are Washington, DC; Richmond, Va.; Virginia Beach, Va.; Charlotte, NC; Raleigh, NC; etc. The selected cities are voted on by SASAA Members. From this group of cities, the Reunion Committee Chair will solicit individuals in the cities to host the reunion. This process also helps to grow friendship and networks. *Locations outside of the continental U.S. require a special vote.
