AFG Edge Virtual Conference – 2020 Registration

Special Notice:

The Association Foundation Group (AFG) Board of Directors has decided that in the interest of the health and safety of our speakers, sponsors and attendees we are moving the 2020 Edge Conference to a virtual platform for this year.

We feel this year’s dynamic program is very important and must be shared! AFG will offer the 2020 educational program via our Zoom platform. Sessions will be divided into multiple webinars conveniently scheduled over 4 weeks, beginning Wednesday, August 26 through Thursday, September 17. Even though we will certainly miss visiting with our colleagues in person, we have worked to create the next best thing to being there!

When:  August 26, 2020 – September 17, 2020
