Chamber's annual meeting focuses on positives

(Continued)

MILLEDGEVILLE —

Another key mission is to further extend the Chamber's reach into the community and continuing the organization's advocacy efforts. 

Keynote speaker for the breakfast was Brian Anderson, president and CEO of the Greater Dalton Chamber of Commerce. He noted that Dalton and Milledgeville have faced similar obstacles in recent years resulting from the economic recession. He spoke on the challenges of rebuilding economic vitality and how the Dalton and Whitfield County community has worked to reposition itself after job losses and industry closures, similarly to the efforts that lay ahead for the local community. 

“Leading a community is a difficult task,” he said, but he added, it is the most rewarding work he as ever done. 

Anderson said communities must work with three guiding principles in their rebuilding efforts: They must have a since of urgency, they mustn't rely on others and, most importantly, they must work together to get things accomplished. 

Baldwin County appears to be on the right track, he said. 

“You're doing the things I think a community has to do.”
