NAGC leaders and staff are available to NAGC State Affiliates and other conference planners to speak on various topics in exchange for a contribution to the NAGC Annual Fund. They are experts in the field of gifted education, advocacy, and association management!

Here is how the ESB works:

  • Contact NAGC as early as possible to secure an ESB speaker for your conference via email or call 202-785-4268. Note, we cannot guarantee the availability of our speakers, so the earlier you contact us, the better.
  • Choose a speaker from the list below. For additional names and specific topics, email NAGC. 
  • NAGC State Affiliates do not pay an honorarium to the speaker, but agrees to make a donation of $1,000 to the NAGC Annual Fund. The donation for non-NAGC State Affiliates is $2,500. This agreement includes a presentation or other activity led by the expert speaker of no more than 90 minutes. For workshops or other activities that exceed 90 minutes, please contact us.
  • All travel expenses and additional sessions are negotiated with and paid directly to the speaker.
  • NAGC staff are also part of the ESB and are available to speak on the following topics: Affiliate membership and recruitment, non-profit organizational strategy, and advocacy and communications strategy.
