Jennifer Clark, an associate professor in the Ivan Allen College School of Public Policy, was elected to the American Association of Geographers’ (AAG) Nominating Committee, one of only two nationally elected committees within the AAG.
Members of the Nominating Committee are uniquely responsible for nominating the AAG president, vice president and national councilors who determine the organization’s priorities and strategic direction.
Founded in 1904, the AAG is a nonprofit, scientific, and educational society aimed at advancing the understanding, study, and importance of geography and related fields. The AAG currently has more than 10,000 members from nearly 100 countries working in geography or related fields in the public, private, and academic sectors.
Members are able to engage by attending the AAG Annual Meetings, publishing in the association’s scholarly journals (Annals of the American Association of Geographers, The Professional Geographer, the AAG Review of Books, and GeoHumanities), and participating in the association’s affinity groups and more than 60 specialty groups and committees. Clark also serves as the current chair of the AAG’s Economic Geography Specialty Group.
