In November 2014 NAGC hosts the largest annual convention devoted to gifted and talented learners. Classroom teachers, gifted/talented coordinators, school administrators, researchers, parents, college and university faculty, and more, will converge in Baltimore, Maryland, November 13-16, for the 61st Annual NAGC Convention. Throughout the pre-convention events, concurrent sessions, poster sessions, exhibit hall, general sessions, and networking events (both formal and informal!), you will explore the many divergent paths that bring us to the hub.
Make a Commitment to Children!
We are at a critical crossroads where the status quo in supporting gifted learners is no longer sufficient. We are losing the traction we need to ensure that all children are challenged to their fullest in the classroom. The nation’s future — our future — depends on educators and parents coming together to ensure that children realize their full potential.
The NAGC Convention is almost here!
