Get ready, folks! The SGAA is heading to Kansas City this year, hosted by Monarch Studio & Tyler Kimball, with co-hosts Andrea Denning of Denning Stained Glass & Kathy Barnard of Kathy Barnard Studio. Our theme? "Sand to Sash"! Join us as we explore glass from conception to sheet to final installation and beyond, with numerous exciting opportunities to engage with the material in new ways.

The hotel is in place, and final programming is well underway. We're offering discounted conference registration until April 1, 2024. Stay tuned for the full schedule and workshops in mid-March, where early registrants will get first dibs on off-site workshops at our host locations and in the hotel.

We can't wait to see you all in Kansas City as we continue to build on our conference mission of diving deep into the art and business of architectural glass!
