National Conference on Trusteeship, 2021
April 12-14, 2021 | Virtual Event

The compounding effect of the global pandemic, declining enrollments, increasing expenses, escalating tuition discounts, long-anticipated generational shifts, and extraordinary social justice unrest has sparked a galvanizing moment for higher education. Strategic governing boards and institutional executives must shape transformative change. More than ever before, diverse members of the AGB community share a common imperative: BREAKTHROUGH.

All the elements of a conference—convening online.

In 2021, the National Conference on Trusteeship will be hosted on a powerful virtual event platform trusted by institutions, large companies, and even the United Nations.

The 2021 Conference will include:

  • Continuous networking through messaging, one-on-one sessions, chat rooms with speakers, facilitated working groups, and virtual roundtable sessions
  • Essential content from recognized experts, including keynotes, plenary sessions, more than 70 concurrent sessions, small group discussions, and community convenings specifically designed for undergraduate colleges, regional universities, multi-campus systems, research universities, community colleges, special focus institutions, HBCUs, Catholic colleges and universities, institutionally related foundations, LGBTQIA members, student trustees, and presidents
  • Immersive content and learning with dedicated session pages, live-stream video, live chats, Q&A sessions, and polling

Don’t picture the conference as a series of video calls. It will take place within a complete, virtual conference environment.

“Relevance is the word that comes to mind when I think of AGB conferences and materials. The session topics are thoughtful, strategic, and helpful. Higher education is in a constant state of evolution and AGB helps its members deal with the changes and advises how to navigate all of the complexities.”
