Executive Director’s Message

December 2023

For the past twenty-seven years, GMALL has consistently provided opportunities for our community to learn something new, to expand our understanding on topics of interest, to be part of a larger conversation, and to socialize and meet others with shared passions.


As we look ahead to the coming year, we realize that a changing world means our programming requires us to think outside the box in terms of content, format, and technology. We know our events inspire discussions afterwards, but we can take that further by developing related programs and creating a roadmap for action and solutions. And we foresee investing a greater part of our budget in improving your experience.


We have ambitious goals for the future that we will tackle, all while maintaining what you have come to love about GMALL.


You’ve received our annual appeal letter in the mail. We hope you will consider a gift to GMALL at this time so that we can continue our success.


For those of you who have already been so generous in your support, we thank you!
