About the CLC

The Community Liaison Committee works on continuous improvements and triple-bottom-line sustainability throughout GVHA operations. We work with a group of local business leaders, community leaders, and community members on issues brought forward by any member, resulting in solutions-focused outcomes and timelines.

The CLC meets every two months virtually, and sub-committees (Transportation, Community Engagement, Visitor Economy) work together to make recommendations or look into concerns from the community. Members provide feedback for GVHA to consider in response to issues brought forward.
