The secretariat is the human (electricity free!) engine room that acts on behalf of members to support activities. There is a FTE - Dom Robinson, the Founder - and a supporting team of part time volunteers who are unaffiliated independent consultants and industry experts that support Dom and the membership where they can.
These volunteers give their time freely where possible, and progress their projects fuelled by their own good-will and determination to help the industry 'do the right thing'. Occasionally GoS will offer the volunteers nominal remuneration and support for out of pocket expenses where travel is required or it is critical to meet deadlines.
This team is invaluable not only to Greening of Streaming, but to the industry. All are thought leaders in their own right and should you require expert consultancy across the media and streaming sector do explore reaching out directly to them!
