Best Practices and Resources for GLIFAA Post Representatives

Updated 2/10/2015


The following is an updated list of Best Practices and Resources compiled by GLIFAA in order to help GLIFAA Post Representatives succeed in their roles at post.  We encourage GLIFAA Post Representatives to learn from these best practices and utilize these resources when serving in their role at post, but we also understand that each post is different.  GLIFAA Post Representatives are encouraged to operate independently and creatively, and often take on exciting projects when opportunities and personal interest allow.
