Dr. Tracy Inman, Associate Director of The Center for Gifted Studies, has been elected to the board of directors for the National Association of Gifted Children (NAGC) as Parent Representative. She will serve a two-year term in the role, which begins September 1, 2018.
NAGC is a membership organization whose mission is to support those who enhance the growth and development of gifted and talented children through education, advocacy, community building and research. Board members typically meet three times each year to consider business of the organization and its strategic direction.
“The energy and passion of the new leaders will propel NAGC as it works to change minds, policies, and practices so that all gifted children get the support they need as they reach for their personal best,” said M. René Islas, NAGC Executive Director.
In addition to her work at The Center for Gifted Studies, Dr. Inman has served in many capacities related to parents at NAGC including Parent Editorial Content and Advisory Board Chair, Parent and Community Network Chair, co-editor of NAGC’s award-winning parent service publication, and co-author of NAGC’s ebook on parent organizations.
“Through that work, coupled with my presidential experience in my state’s affiliate, I understand the critical role communication and cooperation play in a successful partnership among the Parent Representative, the board, and parents,” Dr. Inman said.
