Georgia EMC Committed to Rural Prosperity

The Georgia Chamber of Commerce hosted its inaugural Rural Prosperity Summit Nov. 29-30 in Tifton. The two-day summit at the University of Georgia Conference Center focused on ways to strengthen communities in rural parts of the state. Attendees heard from panels of community leaders from across the state on topics relevant to rural Georgia, such as poverty and housing, talent and leadership development, rural health care, innovative solutions to economic development and a regional approach to success.

Georgia EMC CEO Dennis Chastain has been tapped by the Georgia Chamber of Commerce to serve as co-chairman of the Rural Prosperity Council, and Georgia EMC, Oglethorpe Power Corp. and Georgia Transmission Corp. were presenting sponsors of the summit, which brought in more than 300 attendees.
