AAGC 2020 GOES VIRTUAL
In view of uncertainty surrounding the virus situation this fall, the AAGC Executive Council has determined that rather than cancel our annual conference, we will hold a two-day virtual conference Oct 15-16, 2020. Details are still being confirmed and more information will be provided members in the next few weeks. Please visit our website often for updates. We have two exciting keynote speakers, Dr. Del Siegle from the University of Connecticut, and Lisa Yee, award winning author of the Millicent Min, Girl Genius novel. In addition, we will have a variety of concurrent sessions, both live and pre-recorded. Our plan is to provide links to the recorded sessions for access by registrants beyond the dates of our conference. Please consider submitting a session proposal. The link for submissions is below. Consider also nominating individuals for awards, submit a proposal for a grant, and enter your students in the video contest. More news to come, so stay tuned!
