The simple answer is because you enjoy the Chamorro culture and way of life!

Without its members, the GSA could not survive as an organization. Our Executive Board is working hard to provide an environment within the GSA that will make its current members proud and in effect, attract new members. Some of the incentives on being a member of the GSA include, but is not limited to:

  • Receiving email updates on GSA events via distribution list
  • Option to receive personal GSA email address (yourname@guamsociety.org)
  • Access to the future Members Only area on the GSA Website (Coming soon!)
  • Contact Us for more information
  • If you have a general question regarding GSA activities and upcoming events, we ask that you contact our Communications Chair via email or filling out the Contact Us form for additional information. Your question will be answered directly or forwarded to the appropriate GSA Committee member based on your inquiry.

    Our goal is to promptly respond to your request.  If you feel that we are not providing you with the response in a timely manner.  You can find the contact information for the GSA Officers by clicking on this link

    General membership meetings are held every quarter throughout the year. Its location may vary but since we want to give every member the opportunity to attend, we try our best to rotate the meetings usually between Maryland, Virginia, and the surrounding areas. The location for each meeting are determined usually by members who have generously volunteered to host it in their home..

    The purpose of the meetings is to update the membership community with the latest information regarding the Society. There are motions made and organizational related topics discussed that may require a vote from members who are present at the meeting.

    The Society doesn't discriminate against individuals or groups that are interested in becoming members with the purpose of continuing the Chamorro culture around the world. Those who have been invited by current members to attend the meetings are welcomed and encouraged to become members and experience the fun times within the Society.  Meetings are traditionally preceded by a pot-luck lunch and are usually less than two hours long depending on the items on the agenda.  Come out to a general membership meeting and enjoy the Chamorro hospitality of the member(s) hosting the meeting and participate in the sessions that drive the coordination, planning and execution of the Guam Society events.  Occasionally, visitors and dignitaries from Guam attend our meetings who are in the area when the meetings are conducted attend the meetings as well.
