All GCC members get free access to regional meetings and events throughout the year where members build professional and social networks.  The GCC has 7 different regions with regional co-directors in each area who provide resources, information and connect new members across the GCC. If you have any questions, please reach out to your Regional Director any time!


If you are interested in hosting a social event, regional meeting or getting more involved with the GCC, reach out to your regional director!
