See below for a description of the different board positions. Please note: All officers must be current members of FGSG.

Vice-Chair: (3 year commitment – 1 position available) 

In the first year, you will shadow the current chair. In the second year, you will be the chair. In the third year you will be the past chair and provide support to the current chair. Duties include organizing the FGSG book reception, facilitating communication between committees, and staying in touch with the AAG more generally. Someone who can make a commitment to attend the AAG for the next two years should hold this position. (Virtual attendance in year one could be accommodated.)

Secretary: (2 year commitment – 1 position available)

Takes the minutes at the business meeting and writes them up. Coordinates the books for the book reception and sends out the call for nominations. Because of the note­taking, someone who can make a commitment to attend the AAG for the next two years should hold this position (virtual attendance could be accommodated).

Conference Session Coordinators: (2 year commitment – 2 positions available)

The conference session coordinator is responsible for 1) coordinating FGSG sponsorship of AAG conference sessions; and 2) compiling 4‐6 sessions on issues related to feminist geography out of the unincorporated paper submissions for AAG. Coordinating FGSG sponsorship of sessions involves sending out a call for sponsored sessions to relevant listservs and managing requests from session organizers. Ideally, the session organizer should also compile a schedule of FGSG sponsored sessions with names, day, time, and location for distribution via the FGSG listserv both before and during the conference. Compiling sessions out of the unincorporated paper submissions involves combing through session abstracts and developing organizing themes that can be the basis of sessions (e.g., gender and environment; feminist urban geog; feminist geopolitics). The conference session coordinator is then responsible for creating and registering the sessions through the online AAG portal.
