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.

Community Engagement

Events:

Works to plan an exciting calendar of events for South Loop residents such as our monthly Neighbor’s Night Out, South Loop Beer Hop, Shop Local events, Community Living Board Forum, coordinate Movie in the Park sponsorships, and more.

Neighborhood Enhancement:

Leads neighborhood enhancement initiatives to further improve the appearance and unique character of the neighborhood.

Development:

Provides 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, and to provide opportunities to gather community feedback.

Membership

Ensures that individuals, families, and condo boards are aware of the benefits of GSLA membership.  Manages the member registration process and communications.  Identifies and coordinates member benefits.  Cultivates a strong network of community liaisons with other community organizations and member condo buildings.

Marketing and Social Media

Promotes GSLA events and other events of interest to the community through social media, blog posts, our community events calendar, and our website.
