The AIGAC Conference is designed to increase your professional resources and contacts, as well as to keep you updated on the latest trends and changes in the graduate application process. Our members have said that our conference is like a family reunion because you develop such a great network of colleagues with whom you can share your experiences and learn. Each spring, our conference provides a chance to re-energize with peers before returning to the trenches of the application season. Join us as we travel from Nashville to Washington, Charlottesville to Durham, this coming May 2019.
Early bird pricing is available until January 31, 2019, and registration will formally close April 19th, 2019. If you have any questions, please connect with email@example.com.
