Starting a New Program
Annual Conference and Biannual Retreat
The AGCPD meets annually in conjunction with the National Society of Genetic Counselors Annual Conference (NSGC AC). The meeting typically consists of a short educational program and a business meeting. In recent years, the meeting has occurred the evening before the start of the NSGC AC and has lasted approximately 2-3 hours. Members will receive communication from the executive board regarding specific timing and location of the annual fall meeting the summer prior to the meeting.
Every other summer the AGCPD hosts a summer retreat. This venue allows for lengthier exploration of educational topics pertinent to AGCPD members, as well as time for discussion and collaboration. In 2018, the conference will be held July 16-18 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, MD.
