The NGS Board is a working board. Board members spend on the average of twenty or more hours a month in a variety of activities. Each member is expected to either chair a committee or actively participate on one or more committees. Board members pay all expenses (travel, food and lodging) to the three board meeting held each year. Board meetings are typically held at the annual conference (usually the day before the conference), and at the NGS headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, and in Salt Lake City. Additional meetings are held as needed by conference call. Attendance at the annual conference is also expected.
