KAGE membership is important, numbers count!

Strong membership is especially important when advocating with decision makers regarding appropriate educational opportunities for gifted and talented children.  A membership in KAGE is an investment in advocacy efforts with our state and federal legislators. Be an advocate for gifted programs and gifted children!

“The lifeblood of our success has been and will always be membership. Advocacy requires members who believe in opportunities for gifted and talented students. It is hard for a general to fight a war without soldiers. Also it is hard to replace attitudes of apathy and indifference with enthusiasm and support without dedicated members willing to go the extra mile.”
