Carol Yee was elected the GCI State President at the state convention. She will hold a two year term (2013-2015). President Yee introduced a new Award for her presidency. It is based on individual club members who attended GCI Schools during the current Club Year as submitted by the schools or Symposium registrar. Awards are determined by percentage of students in relation to club size. These awards will be offered again for the 2014 club year.
