Questions?

When can I register for Province Day?
Online registration opens on Nov. 15, 2019. We’ll also have a downloadable form available.

I’m a member of SAI living in the area but not affiliated with a chapter. Can I still attend Province Day?
Yes! ALL members of SAI are welcome at Province Day. We would love to meet you. When you register there will be a prompt to select your chapter affiliation; you’ll select “unaffiliated.”

I’m an MIT. Can I still attend Province Day?
Yes! Members-in-Training are absolutely welcome at Province Day. While you’ll need to step out of the room during closed ceremonies, you’ll be able to fully participate in the rest of the day.

What do I wear to Province Day?
Province Day is a badge-attire event. Essentially, that means dressing nicely like you would for a professional commitment (performing in a concert counts), a religious service, a formal dinner, etc. Remember to wear your badge!

How do I get to the venue?
Here’s the link to Bethany Lutheran in Google Maps. The (free!) parking lots we’re using are off of S Dahlia St. The nearest exit on I-25 is 201 (for Hampden Ave). Be advised that attempting to make a left onto Dahlia from west-bound Hampden Ave is rather challenging because there’s no left-turn arrow.

As an alternative, you can take exit 202 (for Yale Ave), then head west on Yale and left onto Dahlia, passing straight through the Hampden intersection. The parking lots will be on your right.

Public transit: the bus lines that will get you closest to the venue are the 35, 40, and 46. The nearest light rail station is Southmoor (E, F, and H rail lines), from which run bus lines 35 and 40.

What time should I arrive?
Check-in and breakfast open at 9:30am. If you’d prefer to just come check-in and skip breakfast, the Opening Ceremony will be at 10am.

What happens at Province Day?
A lot of things! We open and close the day with a formal Opening and Closing ceremony. Breakfast and luncheon are provided. There’s a musicale, and speakers, and workshops, and games. You get to meet sisters from other chapters in the Province, and catch up with those you haven’t seen in a while. If you’re getting ready to graduate from college or a local unaffiliated sister, this is a great time to meet members of the local alumnae chapters.

I’d like to give a workshop. How do I sign up?
Great! Contact Sabrina Green at green.sabrina.m@gmail.com. Workshops related to the event theme are preferred, but we’re open to any and all ideas.

Please be sure to submit:

  • Workshop title
  • 50-100 word description of your workshop
  • Any equipment or technical needs

It would be immensely helpful for scheduling purposes to have workshops confirmed by Dec. 31, 2019! If you’re interested in presenting a workshop, feel free to submit your ideas ASAP.

I have a dietary allergy/restriction. How can I make sure this is accommodated?
You’ll be able to share information about your dietary needs in the registration form! If you’d prefer to talk to a human about your needs after filling out the form, please contact Sabrina Green at green.sabrina.m@gmail.com. If you’re planning to attend Province Day and have a dietary allergy/restriction, you’re encouraged to register no later than four weeks prior to the event to ensure that we are able to become aware of and plan for all needs.

I have a medical or mobility restriction. How can I make sure this is accommodated?
The registration form will ask for information about these accommodations. The venue is accessible, with the parking lot nearest the hall we’ll be in accessible via ramp. We’ll also spend the day on one floor of the building. If you’d prefer to talk to a human about your needs after filling out the form, please contact Sabrina Green at green.sabrina.m@gmail.com.

Please be advised that you’re not required in any way to share information about the nature of the condition that necessitates accommodations; we just need to know what you need in order to be able to attend. Because we’re renting a venue from an external organization we may be subject to their policies, which may affect what accommodations we can provide. We will work with venue staff to ensure that all attendees are accommodated to the best of our ability. If you’re planning to attend Province Day and have a medical or mobility restriction, you’re encouraged to register no later than four weeks prior to the event to ensure that we are able to become aware of and plan for all needs.

I have a question that wasn’t addressed here.
