AGFD Strategic Planning:

A strategic planning retreat for our division, facilitated by ACS, was held on the first weekend of October at ACS HQ in Washington, DC. Several senior AGFD officers and councilors participated in this highly productive weekend to discuss and plan new initiatives and directions for the division in the coming and future years. We especially thank Councilor Lauren Jackson for coordinating this event and securing financial support from ACS. ​
