The Georgia Society is hosting an opportunity for its state members to put forth a strong effort toward revitalizing and re-energizing their association. “we have been in the malaise of down markets and slowing economies so long now that the negativism and complacency has infiltrated themselves into our view of the world around us.” says the organization’s latest newsletter.

If you have escaped this malaise or were never a part of it please attend and share your positivism and hope that we all see beginning to awaken all around us in our industry. Be a part of our bright new future and positive view as members of the Georgia Society of AIBD.
