GMSMA has 8 active committees that organize and carry out our activities. Many members have found that joining a committee is a wonderful way to meet people while helping out and getting involved with GMSMA. If you are interested in joining any of the groups listed below or would like to assist in a mailing or setting up chairs for a program or event please:
