Management Team

GOED's work is led by its board of directors, four sub-committees and the GOED staff.

Our board is comprised of senior executives from our Leadership Level members, who also select four officers annually to provide oversight. The sub-committee chairs are also appointed annually by the board and are responsible for the committees achieving progress on their goals.
