Many of GEBA’s activities are handled through these standing committees. They are comprised of members who have an interest in working on and promoting those areas. Each area contains detailed information about current activities of an individual committee. Members interested in a particular committee may contact the chairperson to offer their participation. Ad Hoc committees are formed for special projects. Click on a committee name or check out the Administration page for more details and contacts.
