As AAG Executive Director Gary Langham shares in his welcome message, this year’s American Association of Geographers meeting is packed with sessions, networking opportunities, and special events designed to advance the discipline of geography and your careers. Geographers work toward durable solutions for the world’s most pressing problems, and the AAG is proud to partner with you. Thank you for all that you do. 

We invite you to watch Gary’s highlights of this year’s meeting and overview of some AAG initiatives that support geographers year round, including a brand new AAG.org, continued COVID response measures like Bridging the Digital Divide, and justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion.
