Message from the BGSG Executive
Thanks to each of you for supporting the formation of the Business Geography Specialty Group (BGSG) of the Association of American Geographers (AAG). The purpose of the BGSG is to bring together AAG members who have mutual professional interests in business geography. We still have a lot of work to do to move our group forward, but we hope to begin to bring academics together to share research, provide direction for future leaders, and provide a forum for networking and interaction with the business community.
We would like to ask each of you to participate with us at the AAG meetings in Tampa, April 2014. Currently, we are organizing a number of paper and panel sessions for the conference, and plan to also have our annual BGSG business meeting. We invite expressions of interest from all who are interested in presenting in one of our sessions: both research papers and panel session involvement are welcome.
Thanks to everyone for you interest and continued support.
