The annual conference of the Oregon Association for Talented and Gifted will take place on Saturday, October 8th. 2022 on the beautiful campus of  Clackamas Community College, 19600 S Molalla Ave, Oregon City, OR 97045.

The conference theme is "Surviving to Thriving: Supporting Gifted Students in Stressful Times."

 We are very excited to announce that the keynote speaker will be Dr. James Delisle.  His talk will be "Learning to exhale: Meeting the intellectual and emotional needs of gifted children."
We invite anyone interested in presenting a breakout session for the conference to submit a proposal by going to OATAG Conference Presenter Page.

Proposals are due on July 15th. Speakers will be notified by August 1 if they have been selected.

In addition to formal talks, breakout formats may include roundtable discussions, student panels or educator panels and workshops.  Our conferees always appreciate practical presentations with steps that they can implement at home or in school. Breakout presentations should not promote a particular product.  Presenters will receive free conference registration.

Please forward this email to anyone you would recommend as a presenter.

The conference will include exhibitors, vendors and a printed program.  Check the OATAG website for more information about those opportunities.

CCC is located about 15 miles south of the center of Portland near Interstate 205 and the Willamette River
