What is the TG Annual Training Conference?
The TG Annual Training Conference is a premier industry training event that helps student services professionals, financial aid administrators, and community partners maximize their industry knowledge and improve financial aid services for families and students. Attendees enjoy the TG Annual Training Conference each spring because it consistently provides valuable industry-related training along with networking and professional development opportunities.
The TG Conference Agenda will be tailored to provide value to a range of audiences beyond the traditional financial aid professional focus, including higher education student services professionals, high school and financial counselors, and employees of nonprofit organizations. The TG Annual Training conference is geared to serve these professionals as they share TG's passion for helping students and families in Texas attain their educational and career goals.
What type of training is provided at the TG Annual Training Conference?
Training sessions will be divided into educational tracks based on target audience and area of interest. The agenda will provide registration options designed to meet both training needs and travel budgets, allowing registrants to attend one day, two days, or take advantage of the full three-day agenda.
Attendees have their choice of a variety of learning tracks, including:
- Policy and Regulatory Guidance;
