Operating & Advisory Boards

GP RED is fortunate to have volunteer board involvement from a variety of notable experts from around the country. The Operating Board meets monthly to govern and oversee the organization’s policies, funding, and operational direction. The Operating Board also may act as faculty and review GP RED activities and research.

Advisory Board members contribute industry expertise and opportunities, and also may act as faculty, along with being reviewers of activities and research. The Advisory Board meets quarterly through phone and web conferencing.
