SAMA is thrilled to announce our new strategic partnership with, our new conference registration solution provider.  They have created a clean, straight forward, mobile accessible way to register for the 2016 American Mosaic Summit!

In just 2 screens, you will be able to add a Registration, all your workshop, tour, art salon exhibit fee and guest tickets, then add personal and payment information and you are DONE!

If you are anxious about not getting into a workshop or on a tour of choice, first and foremost, BREATHE!  While there are several workshops with low admissions availability, the 2016 Education Program offers 44 workshop sessions, spread over THREE DAYS with an additional 4 tours.  We do not expect sessions to sell out quickly, so if your internet connection is slow, or you are still undecided, chances are, you will be able to find availability in a course that will provide you great value and an incredible conference experience!

Instructions and Recommendations

Please pay CLOSE ATTENTION to the DAY and TIME of the workshops you are selecting.  Make a list of workshops and times offered that you are interested in taking for each day, so that you have your alternative choices right in front of you as you are completing the form.

If a workshop is sold out, you will see an opportunity appear to place yourself on the waitlist for that course.  Waitlisted spots are free, but there is no guarantee of spots coming available.

Please keep in mind we have several sessions that are occuring on Monday, April 4th.  Do not register for a course on Monday if you already purchased your plane ticket for arrival in San Diego Monday afternoon!

The Event Form will display all items available for purchase relating to the conference.

To Add an item to your Registration, you need to change the quantity to “1”.

You will see a column with the date of March 15, 2016.  This is NOT the date of the workshop session, it is the Registration Closing Date.  (We know this quirk of their system makes our form confusing – our apologies).

There are over 50 items listed on our Registration Form due to the awesome program our Education & Conference Committees have put together for you.  It does mean that you have quite a way to scroll to get to the bottom to find the “Register” button which will advance you to the Personal & Payment Information Page.

If you are paying by Check, make sure you open the “Other Payment Options” in order to be able to see the Pay Offline button!

The Promotional Code: EDU-2016 is only to be used if you are registering for THREE or MORE workshops.  Improper use of the code will result in corrected Workshop fees and a $50 penalty charge.  Please be careful if you are planning on several workshops for your registration!
