The Georgia Chamber of Commerce is assembling local chambers from cities outside Atlanta to focus on common issues of interest. The new Hub Chamber Council will advocate on their behalf in Albany, Athens, Augusta, Brunswick, Columbus, Dalton, Macon, Rome, Savannah, Valdosta, and Warner Robins.

“This new council will help coordinate federal, state and local policy in these dynamic and growing economic centers,” said Chris Clark, president and CEO of the Georgia Chamber. “Our hope is that by galvanizing these communities together in one direction it will produce outcomes greater than if their efforts were individualized.” capitol-beat.org
