Tales from the Pitch

Guild Ball community project committees

Last month, we laid out our goals for how the Guild Ball community project would proceed and the committees that we planned to form to accomplish those goals.

We asked anyone interested in taking part in the Guild Ball community project to submit a form with some information about themselves so that we could choose the best candidates for each committee. We had an amazing response - over seventy people! After deliberation, the Guild Ball community project committees are as follows:

The people listed below were the initial committee members at the time of writing. The GBCP is a living group, so some committee memberships may have changed.
