AIGAC 2023 Annual Conference

The 16th Annual AIGAC conference will be held (in person!) from June 5-8, 2023 in New York and Connecticut. Join us!

AIGAC conferences increase your professional resources and contacts and keep you updated on the latest trends and changes in the graduate application process. Our conference provides a chance to re-energize with peers before returning to the trenches of the application season.

We are pleased to offer this amazing event June 5 – 8, 2023 in the New York region. This is yet another fantastic opportunity to come together with colleagues and benefit from having an audience with admissions directors in an interactive format.
