ITGA: On Young Professionals
ITGA members Larissa Ennis (University of Oregon) and Douglas Shontz (Borough of State College, PA) are creating an ad hoc committee for young and early career professionals to discuss shared interests, enhanced ITGA social media strategies, and potential presentations or break-outs at our international or regional conferences.
