AEG 2023 Annual Meeting PPT

Video on reasons to attend AEG's 66th Annual Meeting

Annual Meeting Mentor Program

The Student and Young Professional Support Committee (SYPSC) has developed an Annual Meeting mentor program to pair professionals that plan to attend the 2023 Annual Meeting with interested student attendees.  We hope mentors can provide advice and support both before and during the Annual Meeting to make the meeting more relaxing, enjoyable, and beneficial for students.  Students interested in being paired with a mentor will identify themselves when they register for the meeting, and will be provided with the contact information of a professional who has volunteered to be a mentor.  The student can then contact the professional with questions ranging from "What should I wear?" to "Could we meet during the Ice Breaker?"  If you plan to attend the 2023 Annual Meeting and are interested in serving as a mentor to a student attendee(s), please provide your contact information and the number of students you are willing to mentor in an email to Morley Beckman, SYPSC Co-chair, at

Climate/What to Wear

In September, days tend to be mild and partly sunny as the weather starts to cool, rain becomes more common and the leaves turn. Pack layers and a rain jacket. Old-school Portlanders tend to shun umbrellas, but they can come in handy to shield glasses and hair. For more information visit,

The Meeting attire is business casual. The only event that is more formal is the Annual Banquet where formal or semi-formal attire is suggested but not mandatory.
