Welcome to Savannah!

GEAC conference week is here! The GEAC Board of Directors thanks you for registering and looks forward to welcoming you to Savannah. Upon arrival, you will join more than 150 higher education professionals from 39 of Georgia's public, private and technical institutions. Representatives from the University System of Georgia office will also be in attendance.

View the conference schedule for a quick peek at what we have in store.

As you make final preparations for the conference, please make note of the following housekeeping items:


Registration will be open Wednesday from 1:30 to 6:30 p.m. and Thursday from 7 to 9:15 a.m., so be sure to check in and pick up your conference materials during those times. Conference check-in is located in the hotel lobby. 


The weather is shaping up beautifully, with sunny skies and highs in the mid 70s.


Daytime is business casual with members getting a little more dressed up for Thursday's Awards Dinner.
The Hilton Savannah DeSoto has a fitness center so throw in some workout clothes if you so desire!
