The GSEAC received recognition as the 2014 Employer Advisory Council of the Year
Donations and Community Involvement
- Annually, the GSEAC donates scholarships to students who attend local community colleges and who are moving on to four year educational institutions.
- Annually, the GSEAC attends a number of community events, including the State of the City, the Industrial Technology Barbeque, the Fall Trade Show Mixer, the Veterans Stand Down, the “Pins for Pixie” event, the Stockton Regional Public Agency Consortium, and many more. The GSEAC also makes donations to a number of local charity organizations including the Stockton Family Shelter, the Stockton Homeless Shelter and others.
- Each year at our November meeting, we hold an annual toy drive where the price of admission is a new toy. We also collected multiple car loads of toys, diapers, and toiletries. All of the items that we collect are delivered to the Stockton Homeless Shelter. Our December meetings are also graced with wonderful entertainment. Recent performers have included the Stockton Youth Chorale and the Beta Pi Chapter of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Music Fraternity from the University of the Pacific.
Annual toy and personal item drive to benefit the Stockton Homeless Shelter
This year we are accepting cash and check donations. Checks should be made payable to the Stockton Homeless Shelter, but sent to the GSEAC mailing address or, preferably, brought to our meeting. At the September seminar, the GSEAC board is matching all monetary donations given on behalf of the shelter.
Mark Wilbur – EAC Chairperson of the Year – 2010
Mark Wilbur served as a member of the Greater Stockton EAC Board from 2005 to 2012 and was an outstanding Chairperson for two years. He led by example both on and off the Board. Mark made countless contributions both personally and by increasing the involvement of local businesses. He was committed to providing valuable information and speakers to members and constantly worked to better the organization. His creativity, enthusiasm and compassion led the Board into fund raising events when disaster struck world-wide and locally with contributions for local veteran groups and other charities. The Greater Stockton EAC is a stronger organization today as a result of the impact that Mark has made.
