2015 Board of Directors

A nonprofit organization cannot succeed without a strong core of volunteers.

The GSW Industrial District Association has incorporated deep within its roots to be the type of non-profit organization with an all-volunteer staff.

The Board of Directors, led by the philosophy and purpose of giving back to the Industrial Park and Association members, has determined that a paid staff is not in the Industrial Park’s best interest.

The programs and tasks required to coordinate and oversee the organization are managed directly by the business leaders who volunteer their time and are dedicated to the betterment of the GSW Industrial Park. So, if you have any questions about the Association or becoming a member, please call one of the Association directors at their place of business… who knows, they may be your business neighbor!

The affairs of the GSW Industrial District Association shall be under the general direction of a Board of Directors, the sole policy-making body of the Corporation. The Board of Directors shall, to the extent it deems appropriate, exercise its power to administer, direct, manage, and conduct the affairs of the Corporation through its Executive Committee.
