The Georgia Initiative: Building for the Future

Launched in 2008, the Georgia Initiative is a strategic program that benefits Chamber members through enhanced communications, improved technology, a robust grassroots network, comprehensive research, and member-led policy committees.

The ultimate goal of the Georgia Initiative is to ensure the Georgia Chamber has the resources necessary to play a vital and proactive role regarding issues that will positively impact the state’s economic climate and quality of life.

With the strong support of over 80 key investors, the Georgia Initiative allowed the Chamber to hire key staff, activate its policy committees, build its brand awareness, and implement new technologies to provide better service for our membership and stronger leadership for the state’s business community.

The Georgia Initiative is another way the Georgia Chamber of Commerce is committed to maintaining and advancing a pro-business environment in our state.
