Group on Institutional Advancement (GIA)
The Group on Institutional Advancement (GIA) is the only national professional development group devoted exclusively to the role of institutional advancement in academic medicine.
GIA resources and peer-to-peer connections enable members to increase awareness, understanding, and support among the public, the media, alumni, policymakers, and donors for medical education, health care, and biomedical research.
The GIA supports all advancement professionals whose work largely falls within five broad disciplines: alumni relations, communications, development, marketing, and public affairs.
There is a $130 annual fee for GIA membership. More about GIA
