GLOBE US Partner Forum
The US is divided into six GLOBE regions. Each region has one representative on the US Partner Forum, who works closely to guide the future of GLOBE in the United States. The representatives for each region are listed below. If your region does not currently have a representative on the US Partner Forum, please contact the representative from a neighboring region.
IMPORTANT: US Partner Forum (USPF) members generally have monthly meetings via Zoom. This requires a functioning internet connection. Members are expected to attend at least 75% of the meetings over the course of a year. USPF members also meet at the North American Regional Meeting. To be productive, functional, and representative of their region, members need to fully participate in both the online meetings and any email correspondence each year of service. While a typical term of service is one to three years, members who do not fully participate in the groups, can be asked to step down from the group.
