2020 Welcome

Dear GBA members and other industry professionals,

On behalf of the GBA board, I thank you for your continued support of the Georgia Brownfield Association as we work to ensure our State benefits from the continued cleanup of and reinvestment in environmentally impacted and underutilized properties in Georgia.

We are celebrating our 10-year anniversary, and GBA has grown significantly during this time – including the number of industry leaders it represents, its reach across the state, and its relationships with key regulatory organizations.

GBA advocates for the cleanup of and reinvestment in environmentally impacted properties – thereby increasing economic development and business growth throughout the state – and providing the added benefit of positive social impact. The Georgia Brownfield Association desires to educate and inspire business, civic and political decision makers about the opportunities presented by brownfields in our State.

We look forward to continuing the momentum, and we hope that you will be a part of this exciting work, which will benefit you as an individual and the industry as a whole. Click here to renew your membership today.

We continue to forge and strengthen relationships with like-minded organizations, thereby expanding your reach across the state.
