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! Keynote speaker will be George Farmer! Also speaking (and in the vendor room) will be Phil Edwards on substrates and Rachel O'Leary on nano fauna. Tom Barr will speak on the long-term maintenance/care/algae prevention of tanks. Sean Murphy's exact topic is TBA, but for those of you who don't know him, he's a GWAPA member and a fisheries biologist, and pioneer of the mineralized soil substrate recipe. Also we are looking forward to hearing Nick Klasefrom BuildMyLED.com.
Once we have more speakers and other events lined up, we'll open online registration on this web site. But you can already reserve your room at the hotel 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!
