After much consideration, the American Gem Society (AGS) recently announced the postponement of Conclave 2021 until the fall. We are working on selecting a new date and location, and will update you as soon as possible.
By postponing the event, we can provide a better experience for attendees. As always, the health and safety of our members is the priority and we will continue to monitor the coming months to make the best possible decision for the AGS community.
“This was a very difficult, but necessary decision for us to make,” said Alexis Padis, CGA, Chair of the AGS Conclave Committee, and Secretary on the AGS Board of Directors. “We all miss time spent in person with our AGS community, and everyone was so excited about the idea of seeing one another finally. With the uncertainty that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought and the health of our membership as the top priority, we came to the conclusion, after much discussion, that the best thing to do for our members was to move this much-loved event to the fall.”
When Conclave returns in the fall, AGS will provide a safe environment for attendees that follows local and federal health guidelines.
The American Gem Society would like to thank Jewelers Mutual Group, who will return as the Presenting Sponsor for Conclave in the fall. Without their support, the American Gem Society would not be able to provide the educational programming that it offers.
