Tabor to serve on the Georgia Downtown Association Board of Directors

Toccoa’s voice in Atlanta just got a little stronger.

Connie Tabor, the City of Toccoa’s Community Planning and Downtown Development Director, has been selected to be a member on the Georgia Downtown Association Board of Directors.

The GDA is a non-profit association that promotes the economic redevelopment of Georgia's traditional downtowns. Through advocacy, education and marketing, GDA works to focus the public's attention on the value of downtown. GDA is an independent association that supports both public and private sector efforts targeted at enhancing Georgia's downtowns.

"I’m flattered to be asked to serve on the board, and honored for the general membership to put their support in me," said Tabor.

GDA has a number of programs that are designed to increase the opportunities for and multiply the talents of its members. Membership in the Georgia Downtown Association include cities, downtown development authorities, businesses, professionals and other individuals interested in downtown.

GDA annually sponsors the Georgia Downtown Conference in partnership with the Georgia Department of Community Affairs as well as professional development programs. GDA is involved in legislative issues and mentoring programs for younger members.

Tabor will assist the board with the professional development program, having obtained her Master GA Downtown Development Professional Certification in October 2008. She will continue to assist in the mentoring program, supporting young managers as they grow into seasoned managers.
