    Greetings NFBPA-MAC,

    I am excited to kick off 2020 in full throttle, as we work to grow the chapter and bring public sector leaders together to positively impact the greater metropolitan community. Please save the date for the next NFBPA-MAC meeting to be held on January 29, 2020, at Ohio River South's downtown headquarters. During this meeting, we will introduce the 2019-2020 executive committee, discuss pertinent chapter business, and host a panel focused on the 2020 legislative session of the Georgia General Assembly, and its impact on our members. 

    Please also be on the lookout for a full newsletter offering highlighting chapter activities early next week, as well as registration info for the upcoming All Chapter Meeting, and other partnership events. 


    In Service,

    Odie Donald II
