Space is limited, so apply today.

CSG Academy will take place June 26-27, 2021, in Sarasota, Florida, at GROVE in Lakewood Ranch, a destination for dining and relaxation that happens to be minutes from CSG headquarters. The two-day seminar is free, with snacks, beverages, lunch and a happy hour included. Attendees are responsible for their own transportation and accommodations.*

At the end of the seminar, there will be a card grading test for cash prizes: $1,000 for first place, $500 for second place and $250 for third place. All attendees will receive plenty of CSG swag and a CSG Academy Diploma to keep.

In addition, CSG will be making compelling job offers based on test performance and demonstrated card grading skill. This is not only an incredible opportunity to see what it means to be a card grader, but also to become one yourself!
