SKGABC 2020 Fall Exchange

Event information

November 7 - 15, 2020

Online and On-Water

Let's join together as a guiding community and share some learning and joy in anticipation of next season.  Attend any virtual workshop you like for free and win prizes; or register formally, get on the water, and fulfill your OGT credits for 3 years.

Individual satellite "in-person" portions of the Exchange will be conducted with professionally appropriate COVID-19 protocol in place.  This blended virtual / in-person delivery is an adaptation to the times and is not intended to set a precedent - the SKGABC plans to return to our traditional model of awesome in-person weekend Exchanges as soon as it is appropriate to do so.

  • Prizes: Win "Your Next Exchange Free", SKGABC Membership dues, gift cards to our pro-deal organizations, and more!
    The more you participate, the more prize draw entries you get.

We can set up a meeting time using the SKGABC Zoom account and make you a host, so that you can interact live with your participants.

You can still propose a workshop for the Exchange (open until November 6th - will be added to the document below).

The schedule will be final and no new workshop proposals accepted as of November 7.
