The Governance Committee assists the GWSA Board of Directors with the development and review of bylaws, policies, and procedures for the Association. Morning meetings 4-6 times per year.
Experience in governance with a not-for-profit organization, and comfort working with documents or willingness to learn would be an asset.


The Committee meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 9:30 am. Reports to the Board regarding all membership and marketing initiatives, advancement of the Board’s Strategic Plan. The Committee works with the Executive Director to provide content and messaging advice to the webmaster for the website, social media accounts and prepares monthly GWSA Email Updates.
