We’ve Signed a Lease: Announcing the New Office in NYC
GIA is excited to move to New York City in January. As part of our commitment to communities and racial equity, we are thrilled to announce that we have signed a lease on a new office space in the South Bronx, a predominantly ALAANA community. We will be located in a part of the Melrose section of the Bronx called The Hub, an area with a vibrant arts community, one block from the soon-to-be-developed Roberto Clemente Plaza.

We’ll share our new contact information, including the address and phone number, after the move in January.
Membership Renewals
GIA membership renewals for 2018 will take place in late winter/early spring. Please look for your renewal notification and additional details once we’re settled in our new office!
