PGGCT meets five times a year, usually on the 2nd Thursday of every other month, from September through May. We typically offer two or three sessions with a break in between, followed by lunch, at each program. We recently expanded our programming to include sessions for both advanced charitable planners and for those new to the field. Look at our meeting schedule to find Advanced Case Study Workshops as well as Nuts and Bolts Sessions.
