GIA wants you!

Volunteer to serve on a GIA national committee and you'll find it's a double opportunity: a chance to advance the important goals of GIA and expand the conversation about aging in America at the same time that you are building lasting connections with colleagues.

Committee Service

Consider lending your talents to some of our most important committees - the Program Committee or the Finance Committee.

Membership Volunteer Opportunities

  • Welcome new members to GIA: help by calling or sending a welcome email (commitment: approximately 4 calls or emails quarterly)
  • GIA Ambassador: help to meet and greet new members and first time conference attendees during the GIA Annual Conference (commitment: once annually,requires annual conference registration and attendance)

To discuss membership volunteer opportunities, contact Maria Gonzales Jackson, Director of Member Services and Knowledge Management.

The Finance Committee plays a critical role in supporting the treasurer and the CEO of GIA in keeping the organization fiscally healthy and sustainable. For more information about contributing your talents to the Finance Committee, please contact John Feather, PhD, CEO of GIA.

Peer to Peer

The GIA Mentor Program is a great way for members to help each other build expertise and contacts. It is also a way to ensure that new GIA members get established quickly and easily within the organization, and that funders who have not traditionally focused on aging can find expert guidance and support. Learn more about becoming a GIA mentor, or being paired with one.

Giving opportunities

Giving your time is invaluable to GIA, but is not the only way to support our shared mission.
