The most important function of the NAGC Convention is to share the best of theory and practice in the field. Selecting the best information the field has to offer and making it broadly accessible is paramount to NAGC's mission to "support those who enhance the growth and development of gifted and talented children. But the times, they are a'changin' at NAGC, and the convention needs to adapt to those changes. Best practices in meetings and conference planning have evolved considerably over the past decade, never mind the changes that have occurred over the past 18 months. For this reason, the NAGC Board of Directors established a Convention Task Force. We would like to update on the work of the task force and get your feedback.

Celebrating who they are, where they come from, and what they have done leaves a legacy for other Hispanic scholars to follow.
