Which committee is right for you?..
► Communications committee
The Communications committee is responsible for planning and executing a multi-tiered outreach strategy for GGBA, including social media, newsletters, grassroots marketing efforts, Pride Pages, and the GGBA website.
Contact email@example.com if you are interested or if you have any questions.
► Events committee
The Events committee is responsible for planning and holding GGBA’s monthly Make Contact events and special events, including GGBA’s Power Lunches, Open House events, and our annual gala fundraising event.

► Finance committee
The Finance committee oversees the budget, establishes financial controls, directs long- and short-term financial planning, provides financial reporting, manages audits and accountability policies, creates appropriate investment policies and grants, and manages risks for the GGBA. The treasurer is seeking two to three non-board members to serve as independent voices for the finance committee.
We are specifically seeking members with finance, accounting, insurance, and risk backgrounds.

- Help new members sign up, existing members renew their memberships, and introduce your clients and colleagues to the GGBA.
- Help design the flyers, posters, and handouts needed to help the GGBA continue to do its best work on behalf of all of our members.

GGBA’s Public Policy committee keeps an eye on local, state, and federal rules, regulations, and legislative initiatives with the potential to impact the LGBTQ business community.
