Hobby elected state association

Athens—Bainbridge City Manager Chris Hobby was elected to the board of directors of the Georgia City County Management Association (GCCMA) at the organization’s fall meeting in Athens on March 25.

Hobby represents the Southwest District of the association.

Founded in the 1950s by a small group of managers interested in professional development, the GCCMA membership now includes city and county managers and administrators, directors of regional development centers and their principal assistants. Several state agencies are represented among the membership, in addition to representatives of the Association County Commissioners of Georgia and the Georgia Municipal Association.

The purposes of GCCMA are to improve the quality of local government in Georgia by supporting and encouraging professional local government management; to provide professional development programs and publications for local government professionals that improve their skills, increase their knowledge of local government, and strengthen their commitment to the values and ideas of professional management; and, to serve as the recognized affiliate organization of the International City/County Management Association.
