The content of each announcement is supplied by the member, and any questions should be directed to the person identified in that announcement. Postings to the Employment Opportunity page will run for 30 days and then be deleted, unless we are instructed otherwise when the posting is requested. LGA members desiring to post an announcement in this section may send the announcement to Susan Custer. Employment opportunities are posted as they are received.
