A Note from Buddy McGehee

Buddy McGehee PhotoI’d like to express my thanks to all of you for your kind emails, telephone calls, and encouragement during my first week at Georgia Employers’ Association. Many thanks to the Board for giving me this opportunity to serve GEA.  I am looking forward to meeting all of you in the future and am available to help you in any way I can.

Mike McCurdy also deserves our appreciation for his wonderful and successful leadership of the GEA.  His efforts and accomplishments moved our association forward, and his continuing support, advice, and encouragement during this transitional period will be extremely valuable.

I’d also like to ask for your participation in a couple of important projects that GEA will be undertaking in the near future:

  • Association Member Survey – We are developing a membership survey to take the pulse of our community. We want to find out what we are doing well, what we can improve upon, and determine the products and services that you value. We’ll also use the survey to identify initiatives and projects for the future that are important to your success.  We’ll publish the survey on the GEA website within the next few weeks and ask you to provide your opinions for the future direction of the association. Please participate!
  • Membership Drive – We will be undertaking a comprehensive membership drive in the near future and we will need help, advice, and prospects as we seek to continue GEA’s growth with new members.

Look for more information on these activities in the GEA Newsletter during the coming weeks.

Again, many thanks for your words of encouragement. I appreciate the opportunity to serve you in the future!
