2018 SPLOST Letter from Chamber Chairman
ConnectCandler (Adult Leadership) September Session:
The ConnectCandler “Economic Development Day” focused on industrial development initiatives locally and across the state. The Candler County Industrial Authority partnered with the Georgia Department of Economic Development and the Georgia Ports Authority to host the leadership class in a session that mirrored a prospect visit. Throughout the day, the group discussed local economic development updates, the importance of prospect confidentiality and toured the Georgia Ports Authority. The ConnectCandler class had the chance to see what happens behind the scenes and the steps required to both attract new business and retain existing industries.
ConnectCandler (Adult Leadership) August Session:
The ConnectCandler “Archway Day” highlighted the overall goals and mission of the University of Georgia and the Archway Partnership. During this session the ConnectCandler emerging leaders participated in exercises allowing them to identify and prioritized potential community needs, brainstorm SMART goals and techniques to address those needs, and name potential community resources. Through these exercises the ConnectCandler class gained a better understanding of how the Candler Archway Partnership Executive Committee collaborates to address community needs and how, as emerging leaders, they too can make a change.
