SAVANNAH, Ga. — Johns Creek Mayor Mike Bodker was elected first vice president of the Georgia Municipal Association (GMA) during the association's June 23 annual meeting in Savannah.

He is now in line to become president of the 500-plus member organization in 2015.

Based in Atlanta, GMA is a voluntary, nonprofit organization that provides legislative advocacy, educational, employee benefit and technical assistance services to its 520 member cities.

Bodker, who was first elected in 2006 to serve the newly created city, has served on the GMA Board of Directors for several years.

He is a former chairman of GMA's Revenue and Finance Policy Committee and has been a member GMA's Legislative Policy Council in recent years and is the new chairman of the LPC.

He has also served as chairman of the Metro Atlanta Mayors Association.

"Election by one's peers is truly the highest honor," said Bodker. "GMA's work across borders to build a better Georgia is a positive for all our cities. I am proud that as Mayor of Johns Creek, I can play a part in that effort."

Bodker has been involved with GMA since he was first elected, said GMA Executive Director Lamar Norton.

"He understands the issues cities face and has played an important role in legislative efforts on behalf of cities for many years. We look forward to his continued leadership in this new role," Norton said.
