Committees

FSGA Committees

Each FSGA committee focuses on a unique aspect of one of the many benefits offered to members. These committees work hard to bring our members the most current, cutting-edge, and up-to-date information possible. As one of many great ways to get involved with the FSGA, our committees are always looking for new, innovative, and thought-provoking ideas. Consider joining one and learn more about how they are giving back to our community below. Members serve a one (1) year term, beginning in April. To express interested in joining a committee, please contact us at membership@thefsga.org.
