ECS Diversity Subcommittee

From time to time, public policy issues arise that call for a clearly stated response from the GSA. In addition to our own letters and statements, GSA also signs on to letters drafted by policy coalitions that advocate for positions that serve the interests of the GSA community. Letters and statements are reviewed and approved by the GSA Board of Directors and/or Executive Committee before they are signed or made public.
