The ACGA seeks to offer education in three areas at its biennial conference:

  • Introductory education for new planned giving officers.
  • Continuing education for experienced planned giving officers.
  • Administration, practical considerations, and technical guidance for gift annuity programs. Providing this information for a charity’s treasury, finance, and business officers is a hallmark of the ACGA conference.

Education in all three areas is not restricted to charitable gift annuities. Our Conference Committee solicits the highest quality speakers from across the country to make presentations concerning marketing, program management, donor relations, gift planning technical issues, prospect research, and the financial, investment, and legal considerations of gift planning programs.
