GCIA Committed to Community

GCIA companies are committed community partners whose employees and family members live, work and play throughout Grant County. Our employees are the heartbeat of our companies and their commitment to giving back is inspiring. Our employees care deeply about the communities that make up Grant County and are devoted to ensuring a long-lasting quality of life for all.

We at GCIA are taking the employees lead. Our member companies have all been engaged on their own in a variety of community activities over the past several years and have decided to join forces to improve our local engagement, communications and advocacy efforts. In the first few months since forming we have already contributed money and supplies to people in need. The GCIA is proud to serve our local communities and remains committed to that pursuit.

Long Lasting Commitment

The GCIA might be new to Grant County, but its companies and employees are not. Many of the member companies planted roots here more than 25 years ago and many of our employees have generational ties to the County. We love Grant County, its people, its beautiful landscape and its rich history. We are dedicated to building partnerships with community, local government, educational organizations and the vital farming economy to add opportunity and value to Grant County for generations to come.
