Webinar on New Timber Harvest Notification
December 13, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Save the date for a webinar hosted by ACCG and the Georgia Forestry Commission (GFC) on Monday, December 13 from 9:00 am – 10:00 am. This webinar will provide an overview of the newly created Timber Harvest Notification website – a website that will establish state-wide uniformity on the notification process as well as make it easier for counties to be aware of and monitor harvest sites within their jurisdiction. The site will launch statewide early next year and is a result of legislation (HB 897) passed during the 2020 session of the Georgia General Assembly. All counties who have a Timber Harvest Notification Ordinance in place are encouraged to patriciate in this webinar. Webinar registration details will be released soon.

It’s Time to Update Your County’s ACCG County Legislative Coordinator (CLC)
Annually, ACCG asks counties to update their county’s designated CLC to ensure the most accurate data is reflected in our records. The CLC’s primary responsibilities are to relay pertinent information about current legislation to county commissioners and county management and to maintain an open line of communication with ACCG to ensure county-specific information is readily available for legislators. ACCG encourages all counties to participate and designate a CLC prior to the legislative session. Click here to see your county’s current CLC. To change or appoint your county’s CLC for 2022, please contact Tottianna Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org or (404) 522-5022.
