SPRING 2018 MEETING.
CONSUMNES RIVER COLLEGE,

APRIL 27TH - 29TH.

• OUR MEETINGS

The initial constitution of 1946 established annual meetings of CGS, which was known at that time as the California Council of Geography Teachers. The first meeting was held on Saturday, June 21, 1947, in the San Diego Hotel in conjunction with the APCG meeting. Since the inaugural conference, meetings have been held in almost every corner of the state, in urban settings and in rural settings.

The annual spring conference is generally held the last weekend in April or the first weekend in May, and average attendance hovers around 350 geographers and friends.

The conferences feature high quality scholarship from student geographers, professors and professional geographers from the public and private sectors in a supportive environment. 

Fabulous field trips, lead by local geographers and historians are always a highlight, but many conference attendees claim the camaraderie and fellowship makes each year's conference memorable.

MEETING PARTICIPATION

If you're interested in presenting a paper, poster, or map at the conference, you must register by April 6th, 2018. It is also the deadline to submit application for the Student Travel Award and the Student Paper and Poster competitions. 

When you register, you should already have a title and completed abstract for your paper, poster or map. During the online registration process you will be asked to copy and paste your title and abstract into a web-form. That tile and abstract will appear in the conference program, which is published a week or two before the conference itself.

If you plan to enter a student competition, please follow closely the guidelines established by the various calls for papers, once registration opens. You may compete for prize money and recognition for papers (oral presentations of research) posters, and cartography.
