Network Leadership

Our network activities and events are organized by a wonderful group of network officers and leadership team members who volunteer their time to help make our network one of the top GT networks in the nation. Please see our "Contact Us" page for more info on how to contact an officer. We're always looking for more people who want to get involved! Our leadership team typically meets on the third Monday of every month in the Ballston area at 7pm to discuss and plan upcoming events. Anyone interested in getting involved is welcome to attend.
