Summer Conference

2020-Conference-cancelled

June 27-30, 2021 | Jekyll Island, GA

We hope this message finds you well and not personally impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. These are uncertain and anxiety-inducing times as we all work to make the best decisions for our members, attendees, and communities.  GA4LE has been monitoring COVID-19 advisories to inform all our decisions impacting GA4LE meetings, events, and conferences.

Based on what is known at this time, the GA4LE board has made the difficult, but necessary, decision to CANCEL the 2020 Summer Conference. When opening registration in March, we were hopeful the conference would be held as usual, unfortunately it has not worked out to do that safely with the number of attendees, programming, and agenda our event maintains.

We are continuing our planning efforts to make the 2021 Summer Conference the best event yet.  We look forward to seeing you all at Jekyll Island next year!


REGISTRATION

Registration will stay open through next year. We will honor all current registrations and continue to accept new sponsorships, exhibitors, and registrations up until the conference next year.

The exhibit hall is over 65% sold at this time and we expect that number to continue climbing through the end of the year.  VIEW EXHIBIT LAYOUT

Links for sponsorship and conference registrations are available on the REGISTRATION page.


The 2019 conference saw over 600 registrants with over 150 facilities representatives from nearly half the school systems in Georgia!

School system participation has steadily grown each year as evident in the maps below which detail participation for each of the past 14 conferences.

2020 is unfortunately cancelled, but we're looking forward to 2021 and bringing even more changes for our signature event. This will be our second year heading southeast to the coast on Jekyll Island, GA.  

We’ve set another lofty goal for the 2021 conference to draw 175 school facilities personnel from 60% of the systems in Georgia.  The only way we can meet that goal is to maintain and expand the generous support of our industry partners through annual sponsorships and conference participation.

We understand the challenges continuing to face our industry in this economic climate and have worked diligently to maintain and build value into the sponsorship packages for 2021. The packages are currently posted and registration is currently open.
