Join a Committee
Committees help guide our work in two key areas: member engagement and advocacy. Our Business Engagement and two Advocacy Committees meet monthly year round. We also have ad hoc committees, such as our Excellence in GSI Awards Planning & Nominations Committee.
These active committees play a key role in guiding and advancing our work, and are driven by our members with support from staff. Committees offer an excellent opportunity for members to play a larger role in informing the direction of the GSI Partners, as well as to connect on a deeper level with peers. More than a third of our members currently serve on a committee.
Committee members are asked to attend the monthly meetings and to come prepared; committee members should expect to spend an average of 5 hours/month outside of meetings.
