The 2015 AGA Convention, hosted by the Greater Washington Aquatic Plant Association, is being held at the Sheraton Reston Hotel in Reston, VA April 10 – 12, 2015! Once we have speakers and other events lined up, we’ll launch the 2015 AGA Convention web page and then you can register online for those events. But you can already reserve your spot at the hotel: https://www.starwoodmeeting.com/Book...ssociation2015
or call Central Reservations at 1-800-561-9186 and ask for Aquatic Gardeners Association 2015 room block.
WHY are we not having the convention in the fall of 2014 as usual? Well, those dates were getting kind of crowded, with the catfish convention, the Nature Aquarium Party, and now the Aquatic Experience in late October and early November. So we decided it would be more fun to participate in the Aquatic Experience in Chicago Nov 7 – 9, and host our regular awesome convention in the spring. A win-win!
Speaking of which …
The AGA will be sanctioning the Aquatic Experience Live! Aquascaping Contest November 7 – 9 at the Aquatic Experience in Chicago! There will be an on-site nano aquascaping contest as well as a large aquarium group/club contest. We’re still working out the details with the organizers, but it will be the first event of its kind in North America! You can get a weekend pass for only $89 if purchased by June 30. At 30% off regular price ($129) this is the highest discount of the year: https://www.wwpia.org/i4a/forms/index.cfm?id=402
