Network Business Meetings

Each Network conducts a business meeting for purposes of identifying a slate of candidates for Network offices and otherwise conducting Network business—(e.g. newsletter management and conducting convention events.)

Beginning this fall, all NAGC members have the opportunity to join up to three NAGC Networks as part of their membership. Network social events, as well as business meetings that take place at the NAGC Annual Convention will give you a chance to learn more about these special interest groups. Take them for a “test drive!”

We will also recognize the accomplishments of Alexinia Baldwin, this year's NAGC Legacy Series honoree. Meet the 2010 class of Frasier Scholars, and the donors who make this program possible.
