This is probably the most comprehensive. Lots of good information and resources.

I would also look into your state's gifted association and your local school district's, if they have one. One thing that our school district's group emphasizes is that everyone is welcome, whether or not their child is part of the program. Many parents start coming to meetings, or at least getting on the listserv, before their child is old enough to be in.

I also think that the Talent Search programs have a ton of useful info, whether or not your child is ever tested or takes a class (CTY, NUMATS, etc... depending on where you are).

http://www.davidsongifted.org/ also has a lot of helpful information, and a great forum.
