GAC General Meeting: Book and Media (BAM!) Discussion Group

We'll be discussing the importance and impacts of school boards as well as the upcoming school board elections. My understanding is that GAC cannot and will not endorse specific candidates. This will be a discussion of some of the issues at stake.
