Keep Your School In the Loop
The Glass Art Society recognizes one Student Liaison per accredited school annually to represent the students and professors for that school. The Student Liaison communicates directly with the Student Representative
for the GAS Board of Directors generally via email. The goal is to keep students informed about the organization, of related opportunities and to call attention to specific student needs within GAS. The liaison aids in the exchange of information between the Student Representative and their peer students, their advisors, and their school. (Only one Student Liaison per school per year.
The student liaison must be enrolled in an accredited, degree-granting program, and maintain current student membership with GAS.
