Mission Statement of ACGM 2019:  

To provide a conference that inspires, educates and supports exploration and action through skill-building workshops, opportunities for networking, socializing and initiatives to increase AmSAT membership and build membership participation.

To support the theme of this year’s conference,  the 2019 ACGM Planning Committee will  inspire our members’ outreach to new populations, particularly into under-served and/or historically disadvantaged communities. Our goal is to consciously increase diversity of all forms within the AmSAT community with the aim to foster vibrancy and uphold our commitment to ensure the Technique benefits all people.

After June 12, you will have to register onsite.
