AGS Southeast Guild and Annual Conclave/Conference

Taken from their website
The American Gem Society (AGS) was founded in 1934 by a small group of leading jewelers including the great grandfather of modern gemology, Robert M. Shipley. Their goal was to create an organization that could help protect the jewelry-buying public from fraud, and false advertising. Today, we’re proud to say, Shipley’s vision has become a reality. Nearly 3,500 jewelers, retailers, suppliers, individual titleholders and affiliates have joined the American Gem Society and have dedicated themselves to:

Consumer protection
Ethical business practices
Development and maintenance of superior gemological skills and knowledge

NAJA's Annual Conference

Taken from their website
The National Association of Jewelry Appraisers (NAJA) is the only appraisal association in the United States that devotes itself solely to the appraisal of gems and jewelry and silver flatware and holloware. All of our energies focus on these, and only these, subjects which are updated with new information as it becomes available.

ASA's Master Gemologist Appraiser Course

Taken from their website
The American Society of Appraisers (ASA) is the oldest appraisal society in the United States. The ASA has been training professional appraisers since its precursor, the American Society of Technical Appraisers, began in 1936. Today, ASA is still the country’s only multidisciplinary appraisal society, giving its members the most solid grounding in the appraisal principles that underlie all classes of property: real, personal, tangible and intangible.
