CCSA Annual Convention

September 13-16, 2019
The Embassy Suites | Buffalo, NY

Come join the excitement as we take over Buffalo, NY for 4 days of learning, inspiration, education, networking, shopping, ideas, techniques, trends, friends, fun, food and more.  Our annual conference has become a favorite among studio owners and suppliers alike.

Are you ready to take your business to the next level?
There's only one way - attend the CCSA Convention


Join our Convention Club and you'll be ahead of the pack!

Do you want to take one thing off your to-do list? Or maybe just start making an investment in your future? Join the Convention Club and by the time we head to Buffalo, NY in September, you'll be further ahead than ever!

You'll pay for your convention registration in advance (you and your entire party or just you) and you get to register before we open up registration to the general membership! This almost completely ensures that you get the classes you want!  And if the price increases when we announce the rates for the 2019 Convention, you are grandfathered in at the rate you paid.

We offer a one-time payment, or you can spread your payments over 4 months (January - April). Saving for your future has never been easier.  

Convention Club is open for enrollment January 1 - 31, 2019.

Registration fee(s):
Primary Registrant - $385 or $96.25 a month for 4 months(1).
