GWAG Committees

The success of GWAG requires the active participation of all members as mandated in our bylaws (Article V, Membership, Section 5.3, Conditions of Members). One way to meet this requirement is to join a GWAG committee. This helps the organization develop and manage its efforts and is the most effective in achieving our organizational goals. Members should take thought in choosing a committee in which they will flourish and be ready to serve.

The following lists the missions, descriptions and a brief outline of what the GWAG committees are currently working on --
