GEAC Annual Conference - Registration deadline approaching!

Savannah, Ga., Nov. 16-18

Halloween is fast approaching, which means the 2016 GEAC Annual Conference is just a few weeks away. We look forward to welcoming all of our old friends -- and many new ones -- to the beautiful port city of Savannah, Nov. 16-18.

Online registration is underway. The fee is $300. No registrations will be accepted after Oct. 31, so don't delay!

The theme of this year's conference, "Bridging Ideas Into Action," is a fitting platform for highlighting the unique ideas, initiatives and services that define excellence at our various institutions. Here's a sneak peek at some of the track sessions we have in store:

  • Moving to Meaningful Metrics
  • From Start to Finish: Big Thinking for a Small Institution
  • I Need This Yesterday! How to Satisfy Everyone's Immediate Hunger for Publicity ...
  • Prospect Discovery Calling: The Art and Skill of Outreach
  • Student Philanthropy: Year Two!
  • The Bridge to Corporate Funding

In addition to insightful track sessions, this year's schedule also includes a keynote presentation by Make-A-Wish Georgia CEO Tim Earley. Prepare yourself to be challenged and inspired as he discusses the work of an organization responsible for granting more than 6,000 wishes since its 1995 founding. With every wish granted, the life of a child is changed for the better.

Please contact Planning Chair Stephen Snyder at with questions about the event.
