Conference 

Join us April 20 - 26, 2022, 11:00 am ET - 2:30 pm ET each day!

We are excited to announce that the 2022 ACGA Conference will be held April 20-26! You can enjoy the conference from anywhere because it will be 100% virtual. Spend 5 half days learning from and engaging with expert presenters and fellow attendees, with both live and recorded sessions available to suit your schedule, including a selection of webinars that will complement our ongoing webinar series. The conference will continue its long-standing tradition of providing programming across a wide variety of gift planning topics, from different gift strategies to donor stewardship and, of course, charitable gift annuities. Our goal is to provide key takeaways for everyone in the gift planning community, regardless of your organizational role or years of experience – and make yourself at home while doing so!


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.
