Celebrating 90 Years of GMA: Georgia’s Cities Continue to Soar to New Heights

The Georgia Municipal Association (GMA) is commemorating a significant milestone as it celebrates its 90th anniversary. Founded nine decades ago as a nonprofit, nonpartisan corporation, GMA has remained steadfast in its commitment to supporting and empowering cities across Georgia. This remarkable organization emerged during a time when Georgia's cities lacked a political voice, and since then, it has played a pivotal role in advocating for municipal interests. Today, GMA's unwavering dedication, visionary leadership, and active engagement of city officials have resulted in remarkable accomplishments, including robust advocacy efforts, a wide range of programs and services, expert consultation, and a vital partnership with the University of Georgia's Carl Vinson Institute of Government. 

As GMA celebrates its 90th anniversary, its commitment to serving Georgia's cities remains resolute. The organization's core values of advocacy, service, and innovation continue to guide its efforts. The GMA tirelessly advocates for policies that foster economic growth and support the thriving communities of Georgia. Furthermore, it provides essential training programs for city officials, equipping them with the knowledge and skills needed to lead effectively. By connecting communities with a wide range of services, programs, and resources, GMA ensures that cities have the tools they need to flourish. 

On this momentous occasion, GMA expresses its gratitude to all the city leaders who have collaborated with the organization over the past 90 years. Their unwavering commitment has been instrumental in shaping the success of GMA and the prosperity of Georgia's cities. With great anticipation, the GMA eagerly awaits the next 90 years of partnership, growth, and progress. Together, GMA and Georgia's cities will forge a brighter future, united by the shared goal of building stronger and more prosperous communities for all Georgians.

For 90 Years, GMA Has Been Helping Georgia's Cities.
