Do you have a special interest within the broader field of gifted and talented education? Looking to make connections and build a community with others who share these interests? Good news... NAGC has a home for you!
NAGC Networks exist to explore special issues and concerns related to the primary emphasis of that Network within NAGC. In addition to building a special community for its members, each Network supports the mission, purposes, and goals of NAGC through its activities. Networks provide valuable input to the NAGC National Convention each year by recommending proposals and topics for their own dedicated strand.
You receive access to three Networks as part of your regular membership. Parent Associate Members are enrolled in the Parent & Community Network. You may add all Networks to your membership for just $25 annually. Don't know which Networks you belong to? Just click here to check your member record.
"Mouse over" the Network name for a brief description.
To get involved, join any or all of the Networks and participate with colleagues in working on issues of special interest to you. NAGC members may join up to three NAGC Networks as part of their individual membership. For an additional $25, members may choose all Networks for one year. So it all begins with becoming an NAGC member! What do you receive in return? In addition to a community of people who share your specific interests, Network members receive periodic newsletter updates and access to special activities during the NAGC Annual Convention.
Are you a lifetime NAGC member interested in joining a Network? NAGC lifetime members can now choose three Networks to join at no additional cost. To add three Networks to your lifetime membership, contact member services at NAGC.

Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
NAGC now has created another way to address special issues and concerns related to gifted and talented education such as information about identification, support services and/or research related to gifted children--Special Interest Groups (SIGs). In addition, these groups provide a more targeted avenue for NAGC members to build smaller, more specialized communities within gifted education. Click here for more information on NAGC SIGs.

The Networks are typically very busy at the NAGC Annual Convention--NETWORKING! Check back for details on network events at the 61st Annual NAGC Convention in Baltimore, November 13-16, 2014.
