Why Join the GA?
Why should I join?
The Geographical Association is a lively community of practice with over a century of innovation behind it and an unrivalled understanding of geography teaching.
Teachers join the GA for the professional advice and materials they need for the classroom. Most use the extensive website and many take part in the face-to-face or electronic networking opportunities. Some enjoy closer involvement, by volunteering for special interest groups or sharing their skills and experiences at events and conferences.
Membership is an expression of support and helps the GA in its key mission: to further geographical knowledge and understanding through education.
