Registration is $50 this year! The first 400 attendees will receive free meals with their registration. 400+ attendees will be charged $335 to receive all meals. The last day to reserve meals is June 23rd. In order to be financially smart, this slight alter from last year is due to the dynamics caused by Coronavirus. I encourage you to register today! There are cafes and restaurants in the hotel and near by to visit. Please note: in the case of mandatory postponement or cancelation your payment will be refunded.
The ACGA Executive Committee notified We-Ko-Pa Resort that ACGA decided to cancel the 116th Annual Summer Convention due to space restrictions and the unforeseen financial effects of COVID-19.
Please note that registration fees, sponsorships, and vendor fees for the Summer Convention will be returned. Please be patient as our bookkeeping department completes these reimbursements. We foresee some members and businesses requesting their payments be moved to the next event or kept as a donation to ACGA. If you would like us to hold your payments and credit it to the future or keep your payment as a donation, please reach out to ACGA staff.
Additionally, please call We-Ko-Pa Resort and cancel your hotel reservation (480) 836-9000.
The Executive Committee is tentatively planning a Membership Meeting either virtually or if possible a get together in August or September in Williams, Arizona.

The ACGA Executive Committee and staff would like to extend a big "thank you" to all our registrants, sponsors, and vendors as we "Gather the Herd; Forge Ahead."
