Georgia Chamber announces the New Georgia Economy Series

The Georgia Chamber of Commerce has announced the beginning of its 2019 New Georgia Economy Series. In partnership with the Newnan-Coweta Chamber and other local chambers, the Georgia Chamber will offer half-day workshops to provide unique insights on the emerging business trends and risks, and the impact to small businesses, innovation and entrepreneurship that the state faces. To take advantage of Georgia’s emerging economy and help businesses prepare for the changes, the series provides an opportunity for small business owners to hear from experts about a wide range of topics. Those topics include big data and security, talent and leadership, entrepreneurship and innovation, global commerce and competitiveness, advanced corporate and university research and development, and physical infrastructure and assets. Small businesses will have the opportunity to better prepare for the developing trends in the economy as well as mitigate the risks. The series tour stops in Newnan on Tuesday, June 25 at The Newnan Centre, 1515 Lower Fayetteville Road. To register and purchase tickets, go to  or contact Meg Lowe at  or 404.223.2473.
