Our Current Committees

When you serve on a GFWAR committee, you will come to know some of the very best people in the business, growing your network of colleagues who will walk beside you every step of your career. Members who have served on a committee may consider running for GFWAR executive leadership. After 100 years, we know one thing to be an absolute truth — we are better and stronger together.
