Those who are interested in joining the GEAC Board can be involved in one of two ways: as an Officer or as a Board-Member-at-Large.
Along with the rights and responsibilities of being a Board Member (see Bylaws), Officers hold specific positions and are responsible for overseeing a particular area that supports the mission of GEAC. Job descriptions for all Officer positions can be found here.
Board Members-at-Large assume the rights and responsibilities of being a Board Member (see Bylaws) and typically contribute their efforts to committees or events overseen by Officers (Outreach, Grants, Education, etc.). This is a great way to get to know and have input into how GEAC works and what GEAC does (without being “in charge” of anything)!
Elections are held each June, although those interested in joining the Board at other times of the year should contact the President, as some positions may be unfilled and many positions can be held by more than one person. Of course non-Board volunteers are always welcome to help out in any area of interest and/or as a School Representative!
