In conjunction with the 24th annual IAGC Conference, we have once again organized a Saturday morning of presentations specifically for parents at the affordable price of $60. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer onsite childcare, so make your arrangements now so you will be able to join us.
See Agenda for Parent Saturday
Of course, parents are always welcome to attend the conference on Thursday and Friday. Feel free to peruse the conference schedule to see if this would interest you.
As in previous years, our morning will begin with a plenary session with Michele Kane, Ph.D., as our key note speaker. Immediately following there will be an update of IAGC's advocacy successes, including information on the Accelerated Placement Act. Then there will be two sets of breakout sessions where you may choose a topic of interest to you. A networking session concludes the morning where all of the speakers have been invited to gather in one room and answer questions, each at their own round tables. Throughout the entire morning you will be able to visit exhibitor booths to learn about schools for the gifted, summer camps, and enrichment programs, in addition to shop for books, games and toys. You will also have access to a "Lucy Booth" where for a figurative 5⍧ you can glean a tidbit of advice or at least have a sympathetic ear for 5 minutes.
For those interested, following the morning of activities, there will be a "pay your own way" lunch at Jason's Deli, organized by the Chicago Gifted Community Center. Register here for Saturday's lunch.
Register now to make sure you are included in this annual event as participation numbers increase each year.
