In its 31st year, this biennial conference is recognized as the premier meeting in the gift planning profession, and as one of the longest-running educational conferences in the industry. Topics to be discussed during the conference include the legal ramifications of charitable giving, marketing strategies to improve planned giving campaigns, and the administrative and financial requirements of gift giving.

As one of its many services, the ACGA provides sound advice with regard to annuity rates that can be used by charities and their respective donors.
