2022 Extension Master Gardener National Coordinators’ Conference

Conference Program

It helps to understand when you need to be where so that you can make the most of your travel arrangements! The schedule is such that you can travel on Monday, catch up with folks you haven’t seen in a while at Monday’s reception, enjoy a great dinner at a location of your choice, and prepare for a terrific conference starting on Tuesday. Plan to come early or stay late to see all that Savannah has to offer!
