What is GAWG?

  • Bring forward compliance concerns and questions that are both common and program specific.

  • Review existing central processes and suggest improvements.

  • Develop or share existing best practices.

  • Address risk management regarding travel, health and safety, as well as logistical support available.

Upcoming Sessions:

  • Summer 2019 

GAWG meetings are typically held at the Meyerson Conference Center
