The GAA is a union of all students, past and present, who have worked at the Gateway, the student newspaper at the University of Alberta. It’s run by a volunteer Executive Committee, supported by the Office of Alumni Affairs at the U of A. All former paid staff of the newspaper are members of the Association, as well as any former Gateway volunteer who had more than 5 contributions to the paper.
