NCGE / Alliance Membership
The National Council for Geographic Education is excited to announce a new partnership with the National Geographic’s Network of Alliances for Geographic Education. A new Alliance-affiliated membership category has been created for new and returning members who are affiliated with a participating Alliance.
Individuals who join or renew their NCGE memberships through this new program will receive all the benefits of membership plus an additional conference registration discount, all for the low annual membership rate of $50 for as long as the partnership remains in effect.
For more than 25 years the Alliances and NCGE have cooperated on a shared mission to improve geographic education. State Alliances are closely in tune with education policy, curricula, and teacher requirements in their states. NCGE’s national conference, publications, and other professional development activities provide opportunities for collaboration involving geography educators across the country.
In addition to the concurrent membership arrangement for individuals, the new partnership will allow NCGE and the National Geographic Alliance Network to combine their unique strengths to develop a more focused approach to support geographic education. The partnership will offer an opportunity for collaboration on major advancements in curricula and classroom resources, professional development, professional recognition, research, and outreach.
