President’s Message

We have been busy at GDA putting the finishing touches on our Visitor and Education Center, which includes a new GDA merchandise store and offices for several of the staff. We are excited about the opportunities that will come to GDA as a result of having this new space.

For our students, the new building also offers another environment for the teams to experience while walking a route on campus. We also have changed to a 21-day training program, which has been very well received by our students.

We are in the process of updating our technology capabilities, including a re-designed website, and having podcast, live-streaming and webinar capabilities. These upgrades will expand the ways in which we communicate with the GDA community and beyond.

I am very appreciative of the great staff that I inherited, they have a tough job each day and always give it 100 percent. I want to thank all the volunteers and donors because, without you, GDA would not exist. The tireless efforts of the volunteers is an example of what America is made of: great people doing great things.

We have a lot of work ahead of us and, with your support, we can continue to build upon the great program that we have.

If you are ever in the area, we hope that you will stop by and see all that’s new at GDA.
