about our committees

Be a part of our online newsletter, NewsNet.  Send information about places, events and resources that you have enjoyed and may be of interest to families of gifted students, as well as educators, to Lenore Argen at argenl@njagc.org  We do focus on New Jersey, but members are also excited to learn about events in NYC and other surrounding cities and states, as well as international opportunities!  Your input will be appreciated by all who enjoy this publication!

Advocacy

The NJAGC Advocacy Committee seeks to BUILD knowledge and awareness, FOSTER relationships and connections, and PROMOTE equitable access and outcomes.  You can get involved with the NJAGC Advocacy Committee whether you are a student, parent, educational professional, or just a passionate, dedicated individual looking to make an impact.  Advocating can take on many forms, from simple self expression to taking on leadership roles in any aspect of gifted education.  Let’s support gifted-ed (and each other!) as we work together to make a positive difference for yourself, or for gifted students in your family, school, district, or even across New Jersey!
