Georgia Forestry Association Emerging Leaders

Are you passionate about forest advocacy and education in Georgia? Are you new to the forestry community and the Georgia Forestry Association? If so, the GFA Emerging Leaders program could be for you.

The Emerging Leaders program is an all-volunteer group representing various sectors of the forestry community. The group typically meets four times a year, including meetings that coincide with Forestry Day at the Capitol and the GFA Annual Conference.
