SEDAAG is a regional subdivision of the Association of American Geographers, representing over 550 members in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. Established in 1947, SEDAAG exists to advance investigations in geography and to encourage the application of geographic findings in education, government, and business. The Division supports these objectives by organizing an annual academic conference (traditionally held in November); distributing an electronic newsletter; publishing a peer-reviewed journal (The Southeastern Geographer); granting honors to faculty in recognition of excellence in teaching, service, and research; hosting educational and professional development workshops; and supporting a student paper and poster awards and a World Geography Bowl competition.
Membership dues for the Regional Division are separate from dues paid to the Association of American Geographers. One can hold membership in one without holding membership in the other. However, SEDAAG dues are especially reasonable financially ($40 for regular members, $20 for student members) and dues entitle members to participate in the annual meeting and a subscription to The Southeastern Geographer. The journal is forty-nine years old and has been distributed by the prestigious University of North Carolina Press since 2004. Starting in 2009, it will be published on a quarterly basis. Available both online and in traditional hard copy, Southeastern is considered by many to be one of the best regional geography journals in the United States.
