Support the GBA StatePAC at the Annual Georgia BankPAC
Golf Classic - Oct. 1

A fun way to contribute to the GBA StatePac campaign is by participating in Leadership GBA's 13th-annual Georgia BankPAC Classic Wednesday, Oct. 1, at The Club at River Forest in Forsyth.  Leadership Executive Committee President Parrish Clark with Guardian Bank in Valdosta had this to say,

 

"Our involvement in the legislative process is critical to the long-term health of the banking industry in Georgia, the southeast and beyond. The Leadership GBA program allows us to participate in that, and it's important to be visible and available to lawmakers when we have a chance to see and support them. The BankPAC Classic gives us all an avenue to make a meaningful contribution to the candidates that can make a positive impact on banking. I hope we'll see you there this year."

 

This two-person scramble tournament is sure to be a fun and challenging event for everyone. Registration is $150 per person, $250 per team or $450 for a team plus hole sponsorship (a $100 savings). The proceeds will be donated to the GBA StatePAC. Click here to register. With questions, please call GBA's Susie McGehee at 404.420.2010.
