Come to a Meeting

The work of CGWA is strengthened when it is done in a spirit of openness and trust. CGWA members and partners have a basic right to know about the work done and the decisions made by CGWA. CGWA leaders have a basic responsibility to honor that right by conducting their business with a spirit of openness and vulnerability to public scrutiny.

It is the policy of CGWA that board meetings shall be open to all interested persons. Documents being considered at such meetings will be made available to interested persons at the meeting.  All the provisions of this policy are to be applied equitably to all persons and groups, which includes both members and nonmembers of CGWA.  Board meeting dates and locations are posted on the events calendar.

Please review these policies prior to attending a CGWA board meeting:
