History of GLPA's Executive Committee

The following is a list of GLPA's elected officers and committee chairs from its inception to the present day. These lists were developed using information contained in GLPA's archive of newsletters. As such, some starting and ending dates for committee chairs in the 1960s, 1970s, and early 1980s are unknown. Please forward any corrections or additional information for this list to the GLPA Historian.

President

Note: All terms begin on the Vernal Equinox in the first year and end at the Vernal Equinox following the end of the last year. Elected Presidents serve as President-Elect for the two years prior to becoming President. Following their two-year presidency, they serve for two more years as Past President. The only exceptions to this occurred with GLPA’s first President, who served for three years, and in 1990, when Dale Smith began serving a 3 1/2 year term as President because of the early resignation of Dan Goins.
