Atlanta Business Groups [VBA] Seek More Members With New Events

(excerpt) 1.5.2018

The Vinings Business Association, which Glenn Christian also leads
as its chairman, meets monthly for lunch at the Georgian Club. Its next
meeting is Feb. 6 at 11:30 a.m., when CBS 46 chief meteorologist
Paul Ossmann will speak. The Vinings association also hosts other
monthly events.

“This is the 11th year for VBA and we want to provide programs
that are valuable to members and guests, to grow and market their
business and acquire new customers by providing educational programs,
well-known speakers and after-hours business events,” Christian said.

He said the big events for the group include a Braves season preview
at the March meeting, the Vinings Business Expo March 20, the
motor-coach trip to a Braves game April 17 and meetings to honor
public safety members, veterans and the Vinings Business of the Year
in October through December. Christian said the association has
180 members and plans to [monitor membership] because they
have limited space for its meetings.
