This year's t-shirt design reflected our pivot to a virtual conference and included a variety of t-shirt styles to choose from in either a light or dark theme.  The t-shirts were offered at cost through Spreadshirt, a print-on-demand service. (AGIC did not receive any profits off of sales and offered the shirts at cost in order to give attendees the best price possible).
