The NCAATG regularly holds two conferences per year.
All AATG members and prospective members are welcome to attend these conferences.
They provide an excellent opportunity to meet with a cross-section of
colleagues from the state of North Carolina to discuss topics of mutual
interest. For non-members, they are a chance to meet with fellow professionals
and weigh the benefits of membership.
