Education and Workforce Development SIG
This Shared Interest Group (SIG) grew out of the Education & Workforce Development Committee and is designed for GEDA members who are educators or are engaged in educated-related fields. SIGs provide GEDA members with an avenue for discussing topics of interest to them - at their own pace and when they choose to do so.
