Preconference: Tuesday, June 27, 2017. 9am-5pm.
Conference:  June 28-30

This year, our conference theme is ‘Innovation and Insight’.
Our program will again include a pre-conference session to be held on Tuesday, June 27, 2017 for members who are new to the profession or new to working specifically with graduate students and postdocs.
The 2017 annual meeting theme reflects the continued growth of our professional association – both the growth in GCC membership, and the professional development of our individual GCC members. Expect to learn about new programs, activities, resources and ways of thinking in Houston this summer!
Remember that you must be a GCC member to register for the conference.
