Join AGS



Since its founding, affiliates of AGS have always been made up of a wide spectrum of professionals involved in business, government, public-policy formation, science, and education. This diverse affiliation has caused AGS to have a broad and comprehensive perspective on geography and how geography affects public policy, national security, and human well-being worldwide.


To help advance the mission of AGS with engagement, guidance and financial support, the American Geographical Society (AGS) seeks Corporate 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.


The American Geographical Society of New York is a not-for-profit organization. Our success and longevity in preserving the role of geography in American society is made possible only by donations and grants. All contributions made to AGS are greatly appreciated, and allow the society to continue to carry on a more than a century old tradition of exploration, enhancing geo-literacy, and being at the nexus of cooperation and engagement between academia, government, and business. To join at the Galileo Circle, Humboldt Club, or Bowman Explorers level, visit our Patrons page.
