Thank you for your interest in the 2017 FLAG Annual Conference. This year's conference will take place in beautiful St. Augustine at the historic Flagler College. This year's theme is "The Gifted Frontier" where we will explore where gifted education has been, and where we still need to go.
We had to reschedule the conference from the original September dates, due to the hurricane. We now have updated dates: The main conference is now on Saturday, November 4, 2017. The previously scheduled "pre-conference" day events have been moved to Sunday, November 5, 2017, and we will refer to that day as our "post-conference" day event. Depending on your registration status, your schedule will differ.
