Corporate Partners

Organizations

To help advance the mission of AGS with engagement, guidance, and financial support, the American Geographical Society (AGS) seeks organizations to work with us as sustaining Corporate Partners and Corporate Angel Partners.

Our Corporate Partners help shape the dialogue and focus of our continuing Symposium programs as well as other relevant Society endeavors. Corporate Partners play a critical role in ensuring the relevance of Society activities as they address both current issues and future challenges and opportunities. Corporate Partners work directly with the AGS Chief Executive Officer and the AGS Council. In response to the development of the partnership, AGS will:

  • Engage our Corporate Partners to advance the mission of AGS with the greatest input and direction from a continual dialogue between thought leaders across industry, academia, government, and not-for-profit sectors
  • Create programs and activities mutually beneficial to AGS and our Corporate Partners
  • Establish a promotion and recognition strategy uniquely aligned with the priorities of our Corporate Partners
