What is the NCGS?

The North Carolina Geographical Society (NCGS) is founded on three main tenants:

  • The need for the advancement of geographic knowledge in schools, colleges and public life throughout North Carolina.
  • The continuing importance of geographical information to the national and international well-being of the United States.
  • The desirability of a single organization to represent the diverse geographical human resources within North Carolina.

The NCGS supports these ideals by sponsoring events, publishing an annual journal, and supporting academic and professional development opportunities in geography and related fields. To find out how you can become a member of NCGS, visit our NCGS Membership page.
