With our sixth annual AdvanceUGA Conference approaching, you may find yourself wondering: What can I expect? Here you will find an outline of what AdvanceUGA is, what it isn’t, and what you can expect to take away by attending.  

AdvanceUGA is…

A day-long conference packed with remarkable alumni speakers and motivational workshops for the whole Development and Alumni Relations team. You’ll leave feeling encouraged and excited to continue your commitment to engaging alumni, preparing students for successful careers, and fundraising on behalf of the University of Georgia.    

AdvanceUGA is not…
