Only One Week Until the GLMA Summer Institute: It’s Not Too Late!

There’s still time!

Come join us for the 2010 Summer Institute June 18-19 at The Mountain Creek Inn at Callaway Gardens in beautiful Pine Mountain, GA! The Mountain Creek Inn is a charming venue nestled among the breathtaking foliage that has made Callaway Gardens famous. To check room availability call 1.800.543.7121 and make sure to mention you are with GLMA. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to learn (and socialize) with your colleagues from across the state!

There is no deadline for conference registration – you can even pay on site when you arrive – but if you know you will attend, please fax your registration form to the Executive Office – 404.299.7029 – so we can plan accordingly.

Spread the word! If you’ve already signed up, remind your friends and colleagues to send in their registration as well!


We look forward to seeing you there!
