The A.G. Gaston Conference is a 2-day event that celebrates the life and legacy of Dr. A.G. Gaston and promotes the growth and success of African American businesses.
In 2005, Gaynelle and Robert Dickerson, Jr., with the Birmingham Business Resource Center, joined forces to produce the first AG Gaston Conference. Gaynelle did all the event planning, Bob raised all the money and they jointly planned the program. Now, 18+ years later, that business model is still working.
Advanced Planning Services, LLC provides the following services:
- Managing logistical operations with all conference event sites
- Coordinating efforts with all conference vendors and suppliers
- Providing on-site event management support for the conference
What makes this partnership work is a respect for each other as friends and co-workers and a strong commitment to the conference mission – “One Vision, One Cause, Elevating African American Entrepreneurship”.
