The Global Operations Team

The STCi Global Operations Team (also known as “The GOT”) is composed of seven members. These seven people have expertise in a number of areas and are selected from among partners, city leaders, and friends of Serve the City throughout the movement. Together they provide resources, systems, support, and assistance for STC city chapters and their leaders. The GOT is one of three bodies within the STC International Leadership Team (ILT).
