The Structure

GITCA is governed by dedicated volunteers from the IT Pro community. The principal governing body is the 11 member (10 voting + 1 non-voting) Global Board [GB] supported by Regional Boards [RB’s] representing the 4 main geographic regions North America, Latin America, Europe, Middle East & Africa and Asia Pacific. Each of the Chairs of the RB’s sits on the GB.

Working with GITCA, INETA and PASS, Microsoft has developed the User Group Support Services (UGSS) portal through which member groups can obtain a variety of services including applying for event funding, which is administered by Microsoft.
