The Recertification Exam is administered to all American Gem Society (AGS) titleholders and designees—an audience of over 1,800 individuals. The abstracts included in the Recertification Exam Abstract Booklet create the curriculum for the exam. Participation as an abstract contributor establishes you as a thought leader in the AGS community as the booklet is promoted via email, social media, and through our eLearning portal, AGS PRO.

Abstract Guidelines:

  1. All abstract(s) should be 500–800 words.
    1. Please cite references using APA format, if applicable.
    2. Any accompanying images or photos must be 300 dpi in resolution.

    1. Please note that the audience may include individuals who did not participate in your session, webinar, etc., so please write to a general audience.
