Google Educator Groups (GEGs) are communities of educators who learn, share, and inspire each other to meet the needs of their students through technology solutions, both in the classroom and beyond. Anyone is very welcome to join GEG. You may be a principal, a school administrator, a professor, a student, or just someone interested in using Google products to help people learn. Each group is organized by a local volunteer (GEG leader) and is entirely independent from Google, the corporation - although Google often provides help and support, especially in the set-up stage (info from here).
