NAGC’s Board of Directors has made a commitment to creating an open environment that provides increased opportunities for participation.  With that in mind, we seek to conduct an open call for interested and qualified individuals to contribute to the future growth and success of NAGC.

Here’s your opportunity to share your expertise and experience! NAGC’s committees and task forces accomplish important work in many content areas. As a committee member, you will devote time, energy, and ideas to lead NAGC projects and programs forward, and in turn, lead the field in supporting wide-ranging efforts on behalf of gifted children. You would be appointed to a one-, two-, or three-year term.

The Leadership Development Committee will consider a set of criteria that include your personal qualifications and knowledge of gifted education, experience working with other organizations, and expertise related directly to the committee for which you indicate interest.  Committee Surveys will be available in June when the Board of Director and Network Chair-elect elections begin. There will be an announcement in Compass Points when the survey is available.  All committee members must be current members of NAGC, and may not serve concurrently on more than two committees or task forces of the organization. The Leadership Development Committee reviews all applications and make recommendations to the NAGC President for committee appointments.
