Volunteers Needed!!!

thanks

An organization as large and active as GMS is always in need of volunteers. There are many opportunities to help. It can be as simple as just being at an event to give another volunteer a break for a few minutes or as involved as being a member of the executive board. Volunteers have a lot of fun plus they experience the rewards that volunteering provides. Even a little bit of time here and there can help a lot!

If you have any questions or if you are interested in volunteering, please send email to the contact person listed or the volunteer coordinator ()
