2011 Annual General Meeting

On April 28th, 2011 GEA hosted its 6th annual AGM. 35 leaders gathered from GEA’s diverse base of institutional members to reflect on the last year of organizing and make commitments to the coming year. Over the next year GEA will be creating a Strategy Team, which will meet quarterly and offer leaders from our institutions a place to build relationships and capacity, and to discern together how GEA will prioritize and execute it’s Action Agenda. Another welcome addition to the scope of GEA’s work for 2011 is Local Leadership Training, which leaders at the AGM committed to attending and recruiting others from their institutions who would be interested in and benefit from training. Local Leadership training will be held the evening of August 19th, and the day of August 20th.
