CALIFORNIA ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON GEOGRAPHIC NAMES


The purpose of California Advisory Committee on Geographic Names (CACGN) is to provide recommendations to the U.S. Board on Geographic Names regarding California names for official use in federal publications. The California Natural Resources Agency, with one voting member each from its Departments of Conservation, Fish and Game, Forestry and Fire Protection, Parks and Recreation, and Water Resources, is the CACGN executive sponsor. The USDI Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Geological Survey, and the USDA Forest Service are represented as CACGN advisory members.

COUNCIL OF GEOGRAPHIC NAMES AUTHORITIES


The Council of Geographic Names Authorities in the United States (COGNA) is an independent, non-profit organization that promotes national standardization of names of geographic features within governmental jurisdictions. This goal is sought through cooperation among federal and state agencies that have responsibilities for naming geographic features and cultural entities as mandated by the United States Board on Geographic Names. Our State's membership in COGNA is sponsored by the California Resources Agency.

CONFERENCE SCHEDULED:
The Texas Geographic Names Committee (TGNC) and the Council of Geographic Names Authorities (COGNA) cordially invite you to Austin, Texas.  The COGNA conference-workshop will be held on April 29-May 3, 2014 at the Holiday Inn on Town Lake (Lady Bird Lake).
