Retreat Announcement: Keynote Sessions Require Payment of Registration Fee

The Puget Sound Retreat Committee is excited for this year’s upcoming live SAA-COSA retreat from 25-27 August 2023.

The retreat committee have received inquiries asking whether it will be possible to only attend the keynote sessions, without paying a registration fee. Unfortunately, our agreement with Gwinwood Retreat Center specifies that we will pay a fixed amount for every person who is present on the site, regardless of whether they eat or sleep there. This means that we can only allow attendance at the keynote sessions for people who have paid the registration fee or received a scholarship. We will be checking names against our registration list at the door for those sessions.

If you have any questions or requests, please contact, or see for more information.
