The Florida Society of Geographers


The Florida Society of Geographers.

The Florida Society of Geographers was chartered in 1964 as a non-profit organization for the purpose of furthering professionalism in geography through application of geographic techniques in all areas of education, government, and business. The Society supports these objectives by promoting acquaintance and discussion among its members and with scholars and practitioners in related fields by stimulating research and field investigation, by encouraging publication of scholarly studies, and by performing services to aid the advancement of its members and the field of geography in Florida. Since 1996 the Florida Geographical Alliance, whose mission is to support geographical education in grades K through 12, has helped support the activities of the Society.

The Society holds meetings once a year. At this meeting, papers and posters are presented and matters of mutual concern to Society members are discussed. Meetings are held in different parts of the state and always include field trips to allow participants to gain first-hand knowledge through field experience. The 2011 meeting will be held February 18-20 in Gainesville. The Society also publishes The Florida Geographer (ISSN 07390041) annually. In 2010, the journal will make the transition from a hard copy publication to an open-access, on line publication.
