The More You Give, the More You Get.
Interested in volunteering? Here are just a few reasons why you should say YES to a volunteer assignment.
– It’s the perfect way to connect with other publishers, designers, artists and service providers who care deeply about the success of our industry.
– You can express your ideas, use your skills and abilities, and enjoy the company of others who appreciate your ideas.
– It’s an opportunity to be part of something that benefits your company, the greeting card business, and your career!
– Move up the ladder and be considered for leadership in the GCA.
The Greeting Card Association has five standing committees in which GCA member employees may participate. They include:
Annual Convention Committee – Committee members work with the Chair and Co-Chair to design the conference, develop content ideas for the Annual Convention and other “virtual” events, and improve the overall attendee experience.
LOUIE Awards Committee – Committee members collaborate on the development of many aspects of the LOUIE Awards program, from promoting the Call for Entries, to generating promotional ideas, to participating in the judging process in New York City, to preparations for the annual LOUIE Awards Gala at the National Stationery Show.
Membership Committee – This committee is always looking for people with strong contacts in the creative community, to get them involved in the GCA AND to help develop new, innovative member programs.
Postal Affairs Committee – Perfect for closet “policy wonks”, this is the committee to join if you want to learn more about how we maintain and strengthen our relationship with the United States Postal Service, and keep postage and other costs low for publishers and consumers.
PR and Communications Committee – If you are interested in sharing your marketing / promotional expertise with the larger community, this committee is for you. The committee is in charge of a variety of high profile member programs, as well as management of some of the GCA’s official social media platforms.
Committee appointments are generally for one year, with the option to continue for additional years or move to different committee assignments. There is also the option for project-based work, for those who prefer a shorter commitment. To receive announcements regarding the latest list of committee openings, contact a GCA staff member and provide your primary e-mail address, join our members-only LinkedIn group, or contact Executive Director Peter Doherty
