2021 Board Professionals Conference: Networking

April 6-8, 2021 | Virtual Conference

Connect and converse.

As any educational professional knows, learning goes far beyond what happens in the classroom, according to a plan, from a single source. Learning can happen anywhere, anytime, and by any means, and the conference is designed with that in mind. It is designed to help foster those spontaneous moments and those peer-to-peer connections that can leave you with more to take away than any session or speaker could ever hope for.

Read below for some of the new and creative ways that AGB and the Board Professionals Leadership Group are leveraging this year’s virtual event to maximize those learning moments and natural networking.

How to Join

Multiple Ways to Connect

The virtual platform makes it easy to identify and connect with your fellow attendees, speakers, experts, and partners. Search by institution type or size, interests, and more. Meet via text chats, one-on-one video meetings, or small group video meeting rooms.


Built-in Privacy

You will be in complete control of how you network. No personal contact information will be shared unless you choose to do so. Attendees are completely free to accept or decline any invitations or messages they receive.

Institutes enable presidents and board chairs to concentrate on enhancing their partnerships.

New Attendee Orientation

For those new to the conference or to AGB, or those who are a bit uncertain about what a virtual event actually looks like, take advantage of this optional orientation session the week before. Create connections, explore the event site, and more.

Webinars are included in AGB membership. Register to attend new webinars or view previous webinars on demand.

Roundtable Discussions

Bringing together small groups in face-to-face video rooms, roundtables are an opportunity for attendees to connect with fellow board professionals in lightly facilitated conversations on some of the most pressing topics of today.
