The North Carolina Geographical Society…

is a professional organization for individuals across private and public entities who work with, teach about, or are simply interested in Geography. We promote geographical research and provide an avenue for continued education in the larger community. 


The 2019 annual meeting was hosted on November 1st by the Department of Geography, Environment, and Sustainability at UNC Greensboro.

The North Carolina Geographical Society would like to thank all 2019 conference participants. Paper and poster presentations were well prepared and executed. We will provide more information about the next annual meeting once an agenda is created and we look forward to seeing you all soon.
