New Board Members Needed

Have you ever considered joining GINLC's Board of Directors? We sure could use your help and leadership. The board meets the second Tuesday or Wednesday of the month, during the months of February, April, June and September, and after the annual meeting in November. Board members with leadership responsibilities, like committee chairs and executive committee members, meet more frequently to handle projects, events and planning.

Board members are elected for 3 year terms at our annual meeting, unless vacancies occur during the year. If you are interested in joining us, please call Liz Hugel (734) 552-8950 or Bruce Jones (734) 676-6657 or send an email to the .
