The 2020 Annual Membership Meeting Has Been Cancelled

 

(August 5, 2020)

Dear Members & Key Stakeholders:

We regret to inform you that we must cancel our 2020 Annual Membership Meeting, which was rescheduled to October 7 – 9 at the King and Prince Resort in St. Simons Island.  Our top priorities for the AMM are the safety of our attendees and the quality of the meeting.  As we considered the many restrictions that would have to be imposed on our attendees, it was clear that we could not host the high-quality meeting you have come to expect from us.

The King and Prince Resort has cancelled our event in their system.  If you have already made hotel reservations, they have automatically been cancelled.  You do not have to take any action.

Importantly, the Board Elections will be conducted virtually on October 9th, as previously rescheduled.  Members and their voting delegates will be receiving a notice with instructions from the Election Committee Chairman.

The presentation of the Annual Membership Awards will also take place in October as part of our Virtual Fall Regional Meetings.  Be on the look out for our notice for these virtual meetings and how you can get registered.

Finally, we are already making plans for our 2021 Annual Membership Meeting.  Please mark your calendar for May 5 -7, 2021 at the King and Prince Resort in St. Simons Island.  We look forward to the opportunity to be with you next year at the 2021 AMM!!

Wishing you and your families health and safety,

 

Arthur Corbin
President & CEO

The 2020 Annual Membership Meeting Has Been Rescheduled


Dear Members and Gas Authority Friends,

We have been closely monitoring the current health situation surrounding COVID-19 and evaluating the recommendations being given by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Georgia Department of Public Health.

The safety and well-being of our Members, guests, business partners, and staff are of utmost importance to us, and with the recent public health guidelines and recommendations for reduced crowd-gathering for the next several weeks, we have made the decision to reschedule our 2020 Annual Membership Meeting.

2020 AMM – New Meeting Date

The meeting has been rescheduled to October 7-9, 2020, at the King & Prince Beach and Golf Resort in St. Simons Island, Georgia. Registration details and additional information will be updated on our website and emailed to everyone later in the year.

The Board Election will be held on Friday, October 9, and if you have any questions regarding the election, please contact our legal counsel, Peter Floyd, at Pfloyd@alston.com.

We are grateful for all our Members, Customers, and Business Partners and are committed to providing excellent service as we move forward together.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at 770-590-1000.

Wishing you and your families health and safety,

2020 Spring Regional Meetings Cancelled

 

 

 

In an abundance of caution, we have decided to cancel the remaining Spring Regional Meetings originally scheduled for March 17 (Buford), 18 (West Point), 24 (Elberton), 25 (Waynesboro), and 26 (Adairsville).

The spread of COVID-19 is concerning, and the safety and protection of our Members and Staff is paramount.  We are closely monitoring developments around the spread of the coronavirus, and depending on the duration of this health crisis, we will either reschedule these meetings or host a webinar in the near future to share the content.

Regarding our 2020 Annual Membership Meeting

We are continuing to prepare for the AMM to take place April 29 – May 1. We are optimistic given the present lead time; however, as always, we are committed to the health and safety of our Members and guests, so we will continue to closely monitor information and recommendations from Governor Kemp, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the Georgia Department of Public Health.  If it becomes necessary to cancel or reschedule the event, we will let you know as early as possible.

A link for online registration will be emailed early next week.

Warm Regards,

Chris Strippelhoff
Chief Membership Officer
