Volunteer opportunities- If you would like to participate in a GAGC-sponsored initiative or subcommittee, we are always welcoming of additional volunteers for special projects and events throughout the year. In addition, we can forward any speaking opportunities or volunteer-based events to our ever-growing membership.
