Have you seen our 2016 Annual Report? Print copies appeared in the February 22, 2017 issue of The Newnan Times-Herald, and you can also read it online by clicking here!

Thanks to our friends at The Newnan Times-Herald, we were able to share with Chamber members as well as the community at large some of the many accomplishments our Chamber members have made over the past year, including signature events and the local businesses who helped make them possible; the winners of last year’s Small Business of the Year awards; the outstanding speakers and programs we offered our members; and the new programs that are keeping Coweta on the map not just statewide but nationally as well.

Our board of directors, committee chairs, volunteers and staff are the reason we had such an outstanding year, and we are so proud to be able to share a taste of it through the publication of this Annual Report. We're grateful to The Newnan Times-Herald for another great job of sharing this important publication with the community. We also thank our publication advertisers for their support, as well as all of our Chamber members who help us make sure that Coweta remains known as “Prosperity’s Front Door.”
