Dear KBA Members,


2015 is so full of promise and excitement!  I want to thank all of the membership in advance, because I know this is a group of givers.  Your dedication to this organization and to this community positively affects so many.  You already live this year’s motto “Lift Yourself by Lifting Others”.


It is hard to believe that this year will mark our beloved organizations 40th birthday.  From the simple beginnings of “Trade Days” and a few attendees to our current status as one of the largest business organizations in Georgia with 390 members our organization is poised to continue to grow and thrive.  Of course, this is possible due to the solid servant leadership and forward thinking of my processors and their boards. They created our wheel and developed strong relationships with our city officials and prioritized education, networking, events and tourism. 


In this same vein, I too will strive to look toward the immediate and the far ranging future.  I want to give back to the membership that has given so much!  There will be some events for members only to say thank you.  To foster new memberships, we can develop programs with the next generation of business owners using our educational relationship with KSU.  Networking is a spoke on our wheel never to be overlooked.  I have some surprises in store for you.  New members, be on the lookout for invitations to a quarterly breakfast. I want to discover what new talents are walking in our doors.  


Finally, I want to humbly thank you for the honor of serving the KBA.  #KBA Rocks!
