Speaker Resources

Thank you for speaking at Conclave 2017! 


Abstract Agreement

As part of our annual Recertification Exam – required by all AGS titleholders and designees, we require that each speaker authors an abstract to be considered for inclusion in the annual Recertification Exam. As Conclave is the pre-eminent educational event in our industry, the philosophy behind examining our members on the content of Conclave ensures they are up-to-date on the latest industry trends, technologies, and developments in everything from Business Management to Gemology, Appraisals to Marketing, and more.

Your abstract should be approximately 500–800 words and written in such a way as to be understood even by members who were unable to attend your session(s). It will be edited, published, and sent to our approximately 2,500 titleholders. All abstracts must be sent to AGSEducation@ags.org by May 1, 2017.

In addition, please draft three multiple-choice questions with four possible answers. The questions should reflect the content of your abstract. These will be used as part of the exam.

The abstracts and questions are included in our annual Recertification Exam. Thank you in advance for your diligence in completing this important component to promote continuing education among American Gem Society titleholders.

For any additional questions, please contact Matt Dadey at 702-255-6500 x1011 or mdadey@ags.org.
