"This event has been cancelled"
SIA Customs Seminar
As the Society for International Affairs, (SIA), observes the impact that the COVID-19 has across the nation, our focus is to ensure the safety of our members and attendees participating in our Events. New York has initiated a State of Emergency due to the spread of COVID-19.
Thus, SIA has decided to cancel the April 21st event in Buffalo, New York. Our Business Manager will begin to provide refunds, or you may request to have the funds transferred to an upcoming Event. Please reach out to ScottGarrison@ssiaed.org with your preference.
