Reservation Attendance Policy

Luncheon programs are a member benefit however event logistic arrangements must be made with catering for set up requirements and negotiated set up fees. For this reason, a reservation is required for all members who wish to attend a monthly program. The options available are:

  • Full luncheon $8
    • Vegetarian option is also offered and can be indicated on the reservation form.
  • Tea only $2
    • This option is to accommodate members who would like to attend the program but not partake in the lunch.
    • It is the policy of UTMB Catering that outside food and beverage may not be brought into the Caduceus Room.

SSP Luncheon Cancellation Policy
  • Luncheon/Event cancellations must be received prior to NOON the Thursday before the luncheon/event to receive a full refund.
  • No-show's and late cancellations will be charged the full luncheon price. In order to attend future meetings and to maintain "member in good standing" status, payment of $8 must be submitted to the SSP treasurer.
  • If you would like to send a substitute, you are welcome--just be sure to contact Shirley McGraw, Membership Chair.

If you make a reservation but are unable to attend, SSP is still responsible for the cost of your luncheon reservation. As we sometimes may have a luncheon waiting list, please let us know even if you must cancel your luncheon reservation later than the refund deadline.
