Board, Committees, Key Volunteers
To celebrate and collaborate in Colorado! We envision a time of celebrating our work, connecting in a peaceful mountain setting, and collaborating in quiet spaces with diverse workshops, panels, exchanges, and speeches.
The ACGM will be held at the University of Colorado, Boulder on June 25 - 28, 2020
We are excited to invite you to Take Time to Connect at AmSat’s 2020 Annual Conference and General Meeting.
This year’s ACGM will be held at the University of Colorado in Boulder. We will gather in the beautiful foothills Friday, Saturday, and Sunday; June 26-28th. The Board has decided to reduce the pre-ACGM to one day, Thursday, June 25th. For an extra day to enjoy Boulder, we invite you to join us Wednesday the 24th to explore on your own and/or gather for a group hike, workshop-style and free of charge.
The University of Colorado is a liberal arts and sciences institution with beautiful architecture in a breathtaking landscape. The striking views, quiet classrooms, and pleasant, short walks between buildings will set the stage to help us take time to connect with each other. Easily accessible are many fine restaurants, microbreweries, unique local shops, live music, theatre events, and outdoor activities.
The 2020 ACGM Planning Committee is now accepting workshop proposals!
Have a great idea for a workshop or an activity to start the day?

As you begin thinking about your workshop proposal, keep in mind the beautiful mountain setting of our venue, and our theme: “Taking Time to Connect”. Our vision of this year’s ACGM is that of a retreat, where we have time to connect with ourselves, nature, and each other. Various other sub-categories we have envisioned are: connecting with our principles, connecting with our past, connecting with our future, and connecting with other disciplines. Please feel free to suggest additional topics that relate to connection and taking time.

Workshop presenters requesting A/V equipment, such as LCD projector, must submit this information with their initial workshop proposal.

All A/V requests must be reviewed by MEI to ensure maximal equipment use at minimal expense.
