Forsyth leaders graduate from economic development program

Posted:

FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Several Forsyth County citizens participated in the recent multi-day training program for the Georgia Academy for Economic Development.

Local graduates included Forsyth County Commissioners Cindy Mills and Brian Tam, as well as Brian Bolick and Brad Lurie.

Class participants represented a number of professional and non-professional economic development fields, including elected officials, public servants, business leaders, educators and social service providers.

The academy provided each of the graduates an opportunity to gain a unique understanding of the complexities of economic and community development on the local, regional and state levels.

The next Region 2 Georgia Academy for Economic Development will begin in August 2014.
