Join a GEMA Committee!

Aug 10, 2022

Committees play a vital role in advancing GEMA's mission. Joining committee or task force is the best way to get involved in GEMA and take part in furthering vision and objectives of GEMA. There are many committees to choose from, including some new ones this year based on your feedback. Feel free to sign up for more than one! 

Please consider signing up to be a co-chair of a committee as well. Each committee is co-chaired by one GEMA executive committee (ExCo) member and one non-ExCo member. This is a great opportunity to become more engaged with GEMA and prepare for a future leadership position with us. 

Sign up link is here: GEMA Committee/Task-Force Sign-Up Form (22-23)
