Each year at Conclave, the Young Titleholders turn it up a notch, offering fun and informative events for everyone! Here's a preview of what they have planned for this year:

Scholarships for the Up and Coming Stars

The Young Titleholders will be giving away five, $795 scholarships towards Conclave registration this year! To be eligible, the candidate must be an employee of an AGS member firm or an independent retail jeweler. They must be currently active and have a least one year experience in the retail/wholesale jewelry industry.

The applicant will be locked into the AGS rate on the date they submit the application if for any reason they are not awarded a scholarship.

"My first Conclave meant a lot to me. It was the opportunity to meet other young professionals passionate about making our industry successful. My favorite part was the true friendships I gained and still hold on to today. I will definitely be back!"

– Josh Pruschen, Past Young Titleholder Conclave Recipient

Trivia Night is Back

Are you ready for some friendly competition? On Wednesday evening, April 5, the "Trivia Masters," Lisa Bridge, CG, and Anna Samsonova, CGA, will test your knowledge of random facts and trivia at the annual Young Titleholders Trivia Night. This lively event always includes plenty of laughter and team effort. The winning team may not get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but they will earn a year’s worth of bragging rights. Everyone is welcome!

Every Rising Star Needs a Headshot

Professional headshots can be expensive and sometimes overlooked when entering the corporate world. The Young Titleholders are sponsoring a day of headshots in the networking area this year at Conclave. Do your hair and makeup and get a free headshot! Maybe you’ve never had one done before, or maybe your picture is twenty years old and doesn’t look like you! Whatever the reason, take advantage of this opportunity to make a great first impression.
