Winter Leadership Summit


Feb 3, 2023 @ 7:30 am - Feb 4, 2023 @ 8:00 pm

GBA’s Winter Leadership Summit is an annual meeting where the Board of Directors and committee members convene for strategic planning and working sessions. It is an opportunity for our volunteers to complete assignments together for the current fiscal year ending April 30, 2023 and to identify and prioritize actions to focus on for the 2023-2024 fiscal year.

All committee members are invited to attend.

When registration opens in late November 2022, you will indicate during the registration process your preferred guest room reservation arrival and departure dates. This process allows GBA staff the ability to pull a report (rooming list) which GBA staff will submit to the hotel securing room reservations for all GBA members who plan to attend this summit. When you arrive at the hotel and check-in, you will be required to provide a credit card for all room, tax, and incidental charges. Like past in-person Winter Leadership Summits, some committee members’ room and tax charges may be direct billed to GBA’s Master Account. Your committee chair will advise you of this possibility before or during your Saturday, February 4th committee meeting.

There is no registration fee to attend the 2023 Winter Leadership Summit.
