2024 IAGC Annual Conference

The 29th Annual IAGC Conference is excited to be offering several options for our many attendees, members, and supporters from across the state of Illinois. 

WHEN:      Friday November 1 and Saturday November 2, 2024

TIME:         8:30 am - 3:30 pm

WHERE:    NIU Naperville Conference Center,  1120 E. Diehl Road, Naperville IL  60563


Friday Keynote Presenter:  Dr. Emily Mofield Talent Development

Saturday Keynote Presenter:  Dr. Matt Zakreski  Neurodiversity 

WHAT:      5 hrs PD credit per day (requires sign-in/ sign out each day and registration on PD+)

New this year:

  • The two-day conference is being held on Friday and Saturday, allowing better flexibility for schools who are struggling with filling requests for subs.    Check to see if your school compensates teachers for PD held outside of contract hours in lieu of sub pay.
  • A one-day virtual ticket includes 5 pre-selected sessions (including the Keynote presentation) on Friday only for those who are unable to travel to Naperville.  Attendees will be required to sign in / sign out of each session in order to receive 5 PD credits. (limited availability)
  • A gourmet box-lunch option, provided by NIU catering, is available to purchase when you register.  In addition, we are scheduling two lunch sessions into each day.  We hope this will allow for less crowding and a more comfortable lunchtime experience for everyone.
  • An Exhibitor Adventure Map with longer exhibitor visiting times to allow our attendees to benefit from the many resources and experts who support gifted children and their families and teachers. 
  • A Friday Social Hour in the NIU Ballroom immediately following the IAGC membership meeting, including complimentary refreshments, raffle prizes, meet and greet with our Keynote Presenters and our Sponsors, and fun / challenging games!
  • A Saturday Student Talent Showcase to inspire and entertain guests!

Please review the schedule offerings and additional add-ons to plan your attendance.
