GRYP started an Advisory Board in 2011 in an effort to better connect with community and business leaders in Greater Reading. The GRYP President and Vice President have been able to gain insight from these experienced leaders, as well as inform them of what GRYP is doing as an organization. These discussions have led to valuable synergistic opportunities for both GRYP and other organizations represented by the Advisory Board members. Building relationships between GRYP members and Greater Reading community leaders is also an important benefit of the advisory board focus within GRYP.
