Proposed Network Name Change

The name “Counseling and Guidance Network” is an exclusive name that specifically refers to the academic degree and subsequent work of counselors. This exclusivity in terminology prevents teachers, administrators, and parents from feeling welcome to participate in the work that is the mission of this network:

Recognizing the critical need for attention to the affective needs of the gifted individual. This Network is dedicated to addressing the social and emotional growth of the gifted and talented.  In addition, emphasis is placed on planning and implementing a variety of systems and services for meeting these needs.

Therefore we, the current leadership of the network, propose changing the name of the network from “Counseling and Guidance Network” to “Social and Emotional Development Network”.

The NAGC Board of Directors has approved this name change.  It is now up to the network membership for vote during the June 2017 elections.
