About the Community Advisory Board 

Join Our Team!

The GS1 US Community Advisory Board (CAB) is a volunteer group comprised of supply chain professionals that represent the interests of their industry as it relates to business problems solved by GS1 Standards. CAB members come from companies that recognize the value of GS1 Standards for improved business processes, trading partner collaboration and enhanced supply chain operations and are willing to become involved in our efforts to expand that value within industries through the GS1 Connect conference platform.

If you are a retailer, manufacturer, distributor, group purchasing organization, foodservice operator, or healthcare provider using GS1 Standards, we need you! To learn more about getting involved with the Community Advisory Board, email GS1Connect@gs1us.org.
