2018-2019 Meeting Information

What is the GSA Leadership Council?

The Massachusetts GSA Leadership Council creates and informs policy, promotes inclusive learning environments for all students, supports the development of leadership skills, and fosters statewide collaboration among LGBTQ students and allies. Members of the GSA Leadership Council develop and implement projects designed to make change in local schools, districts and regions. The GSA Leadership Council consists of a state council and five region-based councils. State and regional council meetings take place bimonthly from 9 AM to 1 PM.

We invite you to register a team of up to four students and two adult advisors to join other GSA student leaders and advisors at the regional council meetings. The state and regional council meetings occur during school time, we ask that schools support student and advisor attendance with appropriate arrangements for excused absences. Below you will find a list of meeting dates and locations for 2018-2019.

The Massachusetts GSA Leadership Council is part of the Safe Schools Program for LGBTQ Students, a joint initiative between the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and the Massachusetts Commission on LGBTQ Youth.
