The NGS Board is a working board. Board members spend on average 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 their expenses (travel, food, and lodging) to the three board meetings held each year; one meeting is by teleconference. Board meetings are typically held at the annual conference (usually the day before the conference), 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.
