Chapters and Affiliates

Chapters link all of the AGATE members around the state

Chapters link all of the AGATE members around the state to each other, giving us a method of gaining information which can be used to support legislative actions. It allows us to pool our very many talents to branch out and educate our politicians as well as state and local officials as to the needs of gifted children. As our membership and numbers grow, so does our influence.


AGATE is the recognized New York state organization whose membership includes parents, teachers, administrators and psychologists. AGATE provides support to its CHAPTERS by calling on the vast knowledge of its individual members who share their information. Our e-newsletter, GEMS of AGATE, provides valuable information. The annual conferences that AGATE organizes are one of the only opportunities for individuals to network and learn about the latest ideas and research in the field of gifted education.
