NAGT has two levels of organization. Locally, the 10 sections represent members in specific geographic areas. At the Association level issues are dealt with that affect the whole membership.
The Executive Committee
The Executive Committee is composed of the National Officers of the Association (President, Vice-President, Second Vice-President, Secretary/treasurer, Editor, Executive Director and six Councilors-at-Large) and the immediate Past-President of the Association. The Committee is charged with expending funds and overseeing other fiscal matters on behalf of the members of the Association. The Executive Committee meets face-to-face twice a year, once as a part of the full Council at the fall meeting of the Geological Society of America and once separately at a mid-year meeting held in the spring. In addition, the Executive Committee meets virtually five times over the course of the year including a virtual Annual Meeting in September.
Nominating NAGT Officers
The nominating committee appreciates input from the membership. If you would like to nominate someone for a position on the Executive Committee, please contact the chair of the nominating committee, who is the immediate past president of NAGT.
The members of the Executive Committee, the president or representative from each regional section, representatives to other geoscience associations, and the chairpersons of standing committees constitute the Council of the Association. The Council makes recommendations regarding policy, and reviews the activities of the Association.
Most of the work of the organization is done through the various committees. There are standing and ad-hoc committees which are designed to conduct activities of the organization as set forth in the Constitution, Bylaws and as established by the Executive Committee.
NAGT Position Statements
NAGT has taken positions on specific issues that affect or are affected by geoscience education. These positions were proposed by the membership and approved by the Council. You can also check out the policy for proposing and approving new position statements.
There are 10 geographic Sections in the Association. The Sections have their own officers and conduct programs and events that are of interest to members in their area as well as presenting regional awards.NAGT - Who Are We?
