Countdown to Confluence!

Confluence is just a few days away on Monday, August 22!

Haven’t registered yet? There’s still time! Visit

Bonus: All Confluence registrants can access the recorded sessions until November 22, 2022.

We’ve got one more speaker we’d like you to hear from—our closing keynote, Tony Perzow! Take a few moments to hear his special message for the AGS community.

But Wait—There’s More!

After the sessions, stick around for another half hour and have some virtual fun! Join us for two lively sessions where you can meet with fellow members.

Beverages & Banter
12:15 p.m.–12:45 p.m. PT

Join Sarah Person, CG, Chair of the Education Committee, for this special virtual hangout. Grab your favorite beverage and get ready for some fun and engaging convo!

Our Beverages & Banter lounge is a guided hangout where you can relax and chat about Confluence takeaways, discuss how it relates to industry challenges, and get to know some fellow members better!

We’ll do a Beverages & Banter toast at the end with a photo.

A GIF is Worth a Thousand Words
12:15 p.m.–12:45 p.m. PT

We’ve heard that the perfect GIF is worth a thousand words. Help us prove it by participating in this game of GIFs!

Your guide in this fun virtual hangout is Denise Richards, CGA, Chair of the Conclave Subcommittee. First, Denise will announce a phrase or statement. Then, we’ll break out into teams where you’ll use Giphy to find the funniest or most appropriate GIF representative of the phrase.

Finally, Denise will call everyone back to the main room to share what each team came up with and to select a winner for that round. This is a great way to meet new friends and earn some Confluence bragging rights! To play, all you’ll need is a free Giphy account.

We’re excited to see you get your GIF on!
