Chairman's Article

Road to 1000

A few short years ago, our membership was in the mid-700s and we conducted studies that lead to a repositioning of the organization and a new slogan – “Connect, Develop and Grow.”  It has been exciting to send a welcoming email to each of our new members this year.  In late March, we passed the 900-member mark for the first time in over five years.  Forty-seven of these new members joined SEDC to participate in Meet the Consultants.  Thanks to Gene, Laura, Brooke, Mitch Stennett, our membership Chair, and those who contributed to this milestone.  Well done!

We also spent a significant amount of time this year visiting new office space and are near a deal to purchase space in downtown Atlanta. We hope this acquisition will enable SEDC to provide better service to our membership and perhaps additional services for members hosting meetings in Atlanta.   More to follow on this exciting development.

2013 continues to be an exciting year.  We encourage your participation in our events and involvement in our committees and Board of Directors.  We welcome your ideas to make SEDC even better.   Thanks so much for your participation.
