Each member brings a unique set of skills to the organization which has been crucial in driving this event forward. The GCM Board Members serve by dedicating their time, creative talents and labor - and are committed to making this event one that will last for years to come.
Each member of our Board understands that building community begins with the willingness to step out front and lead through serving. The German Christmas Market of Oconomowoc is proud to have this phenomenal team of leaders in place.
