GEBA is managed by a Board of Directors. Elections for the Board are held in November. Functional Areas (Committees) are managed by individual Chairpersons, reporting to a Board Liaison. General Membership Meetings are held three times per year, at various locations so as to spread travel time for the Membership. Prospective Members are encouraged and welcome to attend the General Membership Meetings to learn about the activities of GEBA and ballooning.
