Statement of the Council of the American Genetic Association

The mission of the American Genetic Association is to encourage the study of comparative genetics and genomics, and to promote the application of genetic and genomic methods to the documentation, conservation, and management of organismal diversity. We are committed to accomplishing this mission together with the most inclusive group of members and contributors possible, unrestricted by race, gender, sexuality, religion, political affiliation, or background. We have worked and will continue to work to broaden participation in this field to reflect the diversity of our broader community. We adamantly oppose any forms of discrimination, and we enthusiastically support the dissemination of peer-reviewed scientific research results to other scientists and the public at large. If any of our members have ideas they would like to share on how we can further achieve this mission, without the influence of politics, we welcome them to do so by contacting your representatives in our society-- the officers and council members: http://www.theaga.org/council.htm

AGA Member Benefits

Watch for an announcement about changes to AGA membership

We are moving to direct member management  through the AGA website, instead of by Journal of Heredity’s publisher, Oxford University Press.  Going forward, we hope to be able to offer a much more interactive platform and faster, more personal communication with our members.

Information on how to become a member for 2020 will be available in early November.

Any questions?  Contact the Managing Editor at theaga@theaga.org
