GFA Emerging Leaders

The GFA Emerging Leaders group is an all-volunteer group consisting of individuals representing various aspects of the forestry community. The EL group typically meets four times a year, and two of those meetings coincide with Forestry Day at the Capitol and the GFA Annual Conference.
