base camp iconThe “Base Camp” of a mountain is an area used for staging an attempt at the summit. Base camps are positioned to be safe from the harsher conditions above. Welcome to the NAGC Convention Base Camp. To coordinate with our 2012 Convention theme, “Reaching Beyond the Summit: Educating with Altitude,” we’ve created a gathering spot where you will connect and collaborate with other attendees. You’ll get your bearings and plot a course to successfully serve high-ability learners. Here’s what you’ll find in Exhibit Hall A:

  • Informative Exhibits
  • Enlightening Exhibitor Workshops
  • Useful Poster Sessions
