What is your favorite aspect of GTFF?

The diversity of people that I get to meet and talk to on a regular basis. I know when I show up to a GTFF event that I will have interesting conversations, but I have no idea what topics they will be about. I know that I will learn something.

What are your goals for GTFF for the coming year?

The first goal is to do my part to get us the best contract that we can get. After negotiations are over, I want to continue filling in gaps in our steward network and offer trainings so that stewards are able to do their best work.
