Becoming a chair-elect opens up a world of possibilities for you and for the direction of NAGC. Networks, through proposal review, select the NAGC convention sessions; provide content for their members and the organization; and contribute to various projects and NAGC events. Network leaders are at the center of all this activity.  Several networks have open positions, which you will find listed on this page and on the nomination form. Networks are run by their chair and chair-elect. Chairs-elect serve for two years in that role and then move into the chair position for two years.
