Associations/Groups – National Council for Geographic Education
It has been over a year since I added to our posts about professional organizations for Geographers and geospatial professionals, so I wanted to start up again with an organization that helps to support the educational efforts that will yield the next generation of Geographers…the National Council for Geographic Education. The NCGE seeks “to enhance the status and quality of geography teaching and learning.” They do this by supporting educators, facilitating communication and offering educational materials on the website. With its annual conference coming up in October to be held in Oklahoma City, the NCGE is continuing their efforts from a new office in Washington, DC (housed with the AAG offices) with a new executive director, Kimberly A. Crews. The council publishes the Journal of Geography and the Perspectives newsletter. For membership information, and to learn more about the NCGE, be sure to visit their website.
