AGD Convocation Ceremony and Celebration 

COVID-19 Impact on AGD2020

In light of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we know many 2020 award and recognition applicants are concerned about attending the Convocation ceremony, scheduled for July 18, 2020 in Las Vegas, NV. While we sincerely hope that the pandemic will be contained within the next few weeks, AGD leadership has confirmed that all applicants approved to receive the 2020 will be able to receive their award in 2020 even if they are not able to attend the Convocation ceremony.  

Approval notifications have been emailed to all applicants. If you applied for the 2020 Fellowship or Mastership Award or the 2020 Lifelong Learning and Service Recognition and have not received an email confirmation from AGD please email
