The GRSCI board is made up of globally minded people who collaborate with a diverse group of volunteers, members, and the Grand Rapids community. Our board members have demonstrated their dedication to the program by following through on a variety of projects. Plus, they’re wonderful at sharing the amazing work GRSCI is doing to promote peace, respect, and mutual understanding between our six sister cities and the people of Grand Rapids. Everyone on our board loves to work internationally. They bring their own gifts to the organization and ask other to contribute time, talent, and treasures to achieve our mutual goals.
