Our all-volunteer Board of Directors has a lot of projects on the horizon while GCA continues to grow and grow! Do you see yourself or someone you know fitting our prospective board member or committee member profiles?  Do you have a great sense of humor, are a hard worker, enjoy being on a team and love adventure!? Are you excited by the prospect of helping to lead the girls to an even brighter future?

To learn how you can join our team please contact us and tell us a little about yourself, your interests and background!  

The GCA Board of Directors is an all-volunteer group of community leaders that guides and supports the girls and programs of GCA, a Michigan  non-profit organization, founded in1979.   They hold a one-hour meeting a month and its often via Zoom.

As interest continues to skyrocket in the Girls Choral Academy among a new generation by expanding our choirs into more schools, growing and diversifying our choirs and concert audiences, we are seeking additional board members and committee volunteers to help us expand our community of support and our public profile. This is an exciting, hands-on opportunity for people who wish to bring their love of music & youth to a wider audience in West Michigan!
