Nomination Period Extended to May 5, 2017, 11:59 PM Eastern

Becoming a network chair or 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. There are several Networks who are looking to fill both positions this year.


Interested members should fill out the nomination form and will be asked to upload the following:

  • A resume/CV (that includes name, home address, phone, and e-mail address; current position; career highlights and history; education; description of NAGC participation and accomplishments - e.g., conventions attended, presentations, committee/network/affiliate work; significant leadership and/or advocacy activities at the local, state, or national level - e.g., committee positions and other service provided to gifted-related organizations; contributions that support the field of gifted education or gifted students - e.g., publications, presentations, and/or creative contributions).

  • Statement of Candidacy (100 words maximum for inclusion on ballot). The Elections Committee reserves the right to edit any Statement of Candidacy to meet space requirements on the official NAGC ballot.

  • A four-color high resolution photograph.

The following qualifications must be met by successful candidates and are evaluated by the NAGC Elections Committee in approving a slate of candidates.

Successful applicants must:

  • Be an NAGC member in good standing.
  • Have been a member of the specified Network for at least the past two years.
  • Demonstrate experience as a strong facilitator, communicator, and consensus builder.
