< >< >Roommate List
The roommate list is an opportunity for PSA conference attendees to find a roommate for conference. Simply check the appropriate box on the conference registration form to be added to the list. PSA will compile the complete list of names, email addresses, and phone numbers, and email everyone who asked to be included on the roommate list. The list will be sent out once a week with any updates after the April 15 deadline. It is then up to the member to contact potential roommates. We recommend making a hotel reservation prior to finding a roommate to ensure lodging.
The Newcomer’s Meeting is specifically for those of you attending your first conference. The first conference can be overwhelming and this meeting will address “How to get the most out of conference.” Discussion will include the schedule, introduce you to other newcomers and some “conference veterans,” and answer any questions you may have. This is a must for first time conference attendees, but also for anyone else interested in attending. Please check the appropriate box on your registration form if you plan on attending.
The PSA will be providing shuttles for attendees from the hotel to the rink on Friday, free of charge. Bussing will also be provided to the U.S. Open Professional Skating Championships.

The PS Foundation was founded to expand the educational opportunities of PSA members. The Walter and Irene Muehlbronner Scholarship Award was developed through the PS Foundation to reimburse PSA members for their registration fees to attend PSA educational programs. Awards are based on financial need, dedication to coaching, sound character, and ethical practices.

Presented by the Professional Skaters Association, the 2017 U.S. Open Professional Figure Skating Championships will feature one event comprised of men’s, ladies, pairs, dance, and group. This competition will be judged based on skaters' “total performance” with an eye to costuming, presentation, music selection, choreography, style, and technique.
The competition is open to all performing and teaching professionals who are U.S. citizens or are permanent residents. The scoring will use a 10 point scale with open judging and live judging comments after each program. Medals will be presented to the top four skaters along with cash prizes.
