Council History

The National Council of Space Grant Directors is comprised of Directors from each of the 52 Space Grant Consortia.  The Council elects an Executive Committee or Ex-Comm.  The Council typically holds two national meetings per year.  The Chair of the Ex-Comm is the person responsible for these meetings as well as maintaining the records of all the meetings.

In 2011, an effort was made to collect the history of the Council and the result of this effort is organized below.  The minutes for all our national meetings since the creation of our program are in pdf format below.  The consortia that have hosted these meetings are highlighted in the map below.  Additionally, those individuals who have served as Chair of both the Council and the Ex-Comm are listed below.
