Invitation to Submit Teaching Proposals

The application deadline for Convergence® is closed.  The submission process for the 2018 Convergence® will be online in Spring 2016.

HGA’s Convergence® conference is a many-faceted experience, including exhibitions, shopping, fashion, and meeting with new and old friends. However, surveys show that the educational experience, class selection, and inspiring instruction are the most important reasons for attending the Convergence® conference.

Receipt deadline: July 18, 2015  Extended to July 31, 2015.
