User Advisory Panel

Term: April 2014-March 2015

Members of GuideStar's User Advisory Panel give us feedback on new product ideas, new features, and general improvements to GuideStar. GuideStar selected advisors to create a panel with a wide background and broad experience as well as to achieve better learning and ideas with a larger group.
