WSA Registered Participants Receive:

Access to WSA activities designed to show Shriners young and old what being a Shriner is all about. They call the Shrine the playground of Masonry, think of WSA convention as your personal “Big Playground” in Las Vegas. If you don’t have fun, it is your own fault.

Areas are set aside for WSA participants to use for their relaxation and a place to make new and renew friendships with Shriners and their Ladies from across WSA. More detail will be provided to you at WSA registration.

Access to the spacious hospitality suite on the upper floor of the hotel. This suite will be the WSA Hospitality Room. Registered WSA attendees have access to free beverages and snacks during the convention. This is just another place to relax and make new and renew friendships. The hours are listed in the schedule of events. Once again, if you don’t visit you will be missing a fun place to mix with fellow Shriners and their Ladies.

The 2018 Registration packet is not available at this time
