Committees

 

Our board is completely comprised of volunteers so we are excited to hear that you are interested in lending your expertise, skills and network to the development of our community!  Volunteer opportunities are available within the listed GSLA committees and if you don’t see a committee that aligns with something you want to see happen, let us know that too.

Events
Works to plan an exciting calendar of events for South Loop residents through our regularly scheduled South Loop community meetings, Neighbor’s Night Out, and annual streetfest – the Bash on Wabash.

Business Relations
Committed to developing a mutually beneficial relationship between residents and business owners, to promote the cultural, spiritual and physical needs of our growing residential community. Responsible for encouraging our SouthLoopOn.org neighborhood discount participation and ‘Shop Local’ initiatives within the South Loop.

Community Enhancement
To provide the processes and structure for the GSLA to have a strong voice in the development of the South Loop community as a desirable place to live through active interface with Developers, the City of Chicago, and elected officials.

This committee is one of the first groups to hear about new developments in the South Loop.  Projects that are awaiting the City of Chicago Plan Commission and current developments are discussed and reviewed with the committee.

The GSLA actively encourages developers and businesses to share their plans with GSLA membership in an effort to understand a planned expansion within the South Loop community.  This forum provides a chance for GSLA to voice an opinion of the project and its impact on the community.  The process allows any potential conflicts to be resolved in a mutually beneficial and affable manner.

Resident Relations
Charged with promoting sociability and recreation among its members through the planning of GSLA sponsored events.  Facilitating events in partnership with GSLA member buildings and communicating information about various events of interest to GSLA members and their neighbors.

Please send an email to us if you are interested in joining or learning more about the committees.
