2015 Conference


The strength of our field is found in the diversity of our thoughts, ideas, and the people that come together to create our unique community. In Phoenix, home of the Valley of the Sun, we will celebrate the difference that our diversity makes on the lives of children and adults by casting a wide net and celebrating Everything Gifted Under the Sun!

Plan to attend the largest annual convention devoted to gifted and talented children for classroom teachers, gifted/talented coordinators, school administrators, researchers, parents, college and university faculty, and others interested in the education of high-ability and high-potential learners. The Convention will take place at the Phoenix Convention Center, North Building, and the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Hotel.

On this site you’ll find information about pre-convention workshops and offsite educational programs, concurrent education sessions, speaker biographies and presentations, exhibitors, keynotes, special events and meetings. You can browse by Network strand if you want to explore topics related to a primary focus. ┬áNetwork activities at Convention are open to all attendees.

The Arizona Association for Gifted and Talented will host two events on Saturday: Parent Day and Kids Program and an evening of celebration with a special documentary screening.

To help you organize and make the most of your time, we encourage you to use “My Plan.” Your saved “My Plan” will also be accessible via the Convention App.
