Global Outreach Committee

global outreach committee


The Global Outreach (GO) Committee is meant to further internationalize SRI by promoting and organizing initiatives and programs held outside of North America. The GO Committee will also promote and encourage international participation in SRI. This includes webinars, podcasts, international summits, and assisting with site selection of international meetings as requested. Members of the Global Outreach committee itself should be representative of multiple regions of the world.
