I'll probably be going. I've been the last few years and it's a good event to pick up some CEUs. I'm thinking about doing the Belgard Advanced Paver course this year.

Another one to look at is the GGIA Wintergreen event in January. It's a good bit larger, at least with the number of exhibitors. But really, I don't go for the trade show, just the seminars.

I've never had a chance to go to one. I'm wanting to go more for the seminars also. I'm wanting to get my GCLP and this one offers a seminar for it and the test.

Have you been studying for the GCLP? I kind of get the impression that review session is just a refresher before the exam.

I'm actually in the GCLP class right now in Athens, and it's an 8 week class.

I've been doing the self study with the book. I agree, it's most likely a review. There is no way you can learn everything in that book in 2 hours. I haven't heard of the class, how does that work?

Each class is 2.5 hours, usually covers 3 chapters and is instructed by Todd Hurt, Amanda Tedrow the Athens Clarke county extension Agent, and other folks from UGA.
