2017 Annual Report
2 — The Newnan Times-Herald — 2017 Chamber Annual Report
Letter from the 2017 Chair and President/CEO THE NEWNAN-COWETA CHAMBER had an amazing year in 2017, and as always, we could never have achieved such success without our board of directors,
Chamber staff and Chamber volunteers! Some of the highlights of the year included the graduation of our 2016-2017 Leadership Coweta class, a group of existing and emerging leaders that is already doing great things here in Coweta County. As their class service project, this group decided to support local literacy efforts by constructing and erecting a series of Little Free Libraries around the county. Our Chamber also led the effort to see passage of both ESPLOST and SPLOST, making sure that the one-penny local option sales tax continues to benefit our schools and the excellent quality of life we enjoy here in Coweta. Our Chamber continued to support the Georgia Consortium of Advanced Technical Training, or GA CATT, the German-apprenticeship style program that is the first of its kind in the United States. The program unites the German American Chamber of Commerce of the Southern U.S., Inc. with the Technical College System of Georgia and eight Coweta manufacturers. Beginning in the 10th grade, high school students have the opportunity to complete their education with a high school diploma, German apprenticeship certificate and an associate degree in Industrial Mechanics through West Georgia Technical College. We helped educate the local business community about LINC, the linear parks initiative, at one of our NuLink Early Bird Forums. These forums were among the many events we hosted throughout the year, which also included our Business-After-Hours networking events and several State of the Community lunches. New in 2017, we launched the Six Figure Success Club Meetups in conjunction with Ignite Business Coaching to make sure that local entrepreneurs have the resources they need to launch and grow their business. Our Business Women’s Network had a great year thanks to a new mentoring program and our popular Women of Prosperity Luncheons, and our Young Professionals continued to inspire and educate us all with their many educational and networking events. We also had a lot of fun in 2017, from our 32nd Annual Golf Classic in May to our annual Small Business Awards Celebration in October and our always highly anticipated Winter Wonderland Big Expo in November. As we look ahead to 2018, we’re so proud of what our Chamber has accomplished and anticipate even greater achievements ahead.

2017 Chamber Annual Report — The Newnan Times-Herald — 3
Letter from the 2018 Chairman of the Board DEAR CHAMBER MEMBERS,
It is a privilege to serve as the 2018 Chair of the Newnan-Coweta Chamber. My commitment to each of our members is that we will continue to focus on our mission of championing increased economic prosperity for our members. The Chamber reaches a milestone this year as we celebrate 70 years of service to our members. The work that has been accomplished by previous Chamber members and executives has helped to create this incredible community where we work and live. On Thursday, May 6, 1947, a group of community leaders officially formed the Newnan-Coweta Chamber of Commerce in the county courthouse in Newnan. According to newspaper reports at the time, it was a momentous occasion, drawing representatives from the U.S. Chamber, many other Georgia Chambers, and over 300 business, professional, industrial and agricultural men from Newnan and Coweta County. During that inaugural ceremony, L.P. Dickie, representative of the United States Chamber of Commerce, is quoted as saying, “No city is going to stand still.” He declared, “It is either going forward or backward, and I am sure that those of you here tonight are interested in the growth of your community. And will work toward that end.” Seventy years later, you still hear some of the exact same comments around the Chamber office and boardroom. While there has been great change in our community, the purpose and challenges for the Chamber remain the same. I once heard a quote that I remind myself of often, “The best way to predict the future is to create it.” That is part of what the Andy Miller Chamber does. We look to the future and ask questions like “What do we want Coweta County to look like?” and “How can we create the best environment for businesses to prosper?” There is one certainty; we will get what we create, or what we allow. We have a responsibility to create the future we desire and to not allow things to happen that would prevent it. Your support of the Chamber is greatly appreciated. While you are busy working on your business, the Chamber is working to make Coweta a better place to do business. Sometimes that is in very visible ways, like hosting networking or educational events. Most often, the Chamber is working for you quietly behind the scenes, building connections between members, working with our local delegation to evaluate pending legislation, or supporting workforce development. All of these efforts ensure that you have an environment where your business can prosper. Your Chamber is poised to continue the mission, as we have built a dedicated and capable staff led by President and CEO Candace Boothby and Vice President Cynthia Bennett. The previous board of directors, led by past chair John Hall, has done a great job meeting established goals and tracking key indicators. I am grateful for their work and will continue with the same diligence and commitment to the mission. All of this work is done for you, our most valuable asset. We do need your help, though. Your Chamber board and your delegates to the State House and Senate want to hear from you. The results from the surveys you receive make a difference. Your input is carefully considered and affects decisions made on your behalf. Please take the time to respond when you receive the next survey. Also, because this is a membership organization, your continued support is critical. If you are not already an Enhanced Investor, I encourage you to consider joining this special group of Chamber supporters. Coweta County is a great place to live and work, and I am deeply grateful to have called it home for over 47 years. We will work to ensure it remains that way for generations to come. It is our obligation and duty and my privilege.
Andy Miller, PrintSource, 2018 Chair, Newnan-Coweta Chamber

Coweta County Safety Council educates community, businesses on workplace safety OUR ADVOCACY DIVISION supported
Coweta’s industrial and general business by continuing its work with the Coweta County Safety Council, which was formed under the auspices of the Chamber to provide guidance and training to businesses in Coweta County. This council is comprised of safety professionals who desire to share their collective knowledge to help local industry comply with OSHA regulations and ultimately keep
the Coweta County workforce healthy and safe. The Safety Council believes that it takes the combined efforts of local companies and community resources to effectively promote safe work practices. The Safety Council held monthly programs on topics ranging from safe rigging and fall protection to new OSHA rules and emergency preparedness. In August, the council launched a new newsletter to help keep members informed on issues affecting safety professionals in

Newnan-Coweta Chamber leads successful effort to pass E-SPLOST and SPLOST FOR MANY YEARS NOW,
Coweta County has enjoyed the fruit of a successful marketing campaign branding Coweta County as Prosperity’s Front Door. In addition to our amazing business community, we take great pride in our excellent school system and our state-of-the-art health care facilities. We have beautiful homes, top-notch recreational facilities, and so many great retail choices that people from far and wide consider Coweta County a favorite shopping destination. Naturally, we love the fact
that out-of-county shoppers help contribute to our local school system and economy through our one-penny sales taxes. For that and many other reasons, our Chamber members decided that continuing these one-penny sales taxes just made sense. These were not additional taxes but simply a continuation of the current E-SPLOST and SPLOST. With E-SPLOST, the funds will be used to fund improvements to older schools, upgrade security, and purchase school buses, books and technology. The SPLOST funds
will pay for projects such as road maintenance, new parks and recreation projects, and upgrades to the public safety radio system. This new system will help maintain our safe community, which remains a priority for everyone. At the Chamber, we have long believed that Coweta’s quality of life is our gift to the future. It’s a gift we don’t take for granted, and we were so pleased that voters agreed with us to help us see Coweta’s great quality of life continue by overwhelmingly voting “Yes” to E-SPLOST and SPLOST.
Informational postcards were mailed to our members as just one of the many ways our Chamber supported the successful E-SPLOST and SPLOST campaigns.

Branding Chamber continues ‘Prosperity’s Front Door’ community branding campaign HOW A COMMUNITY chooses to market
itself is a key decision, and since 2011, The Chamber has been using the marketing and branding theme of “Prosperity’s Front Door.” The “construction” of a doorway to prosperity was a group effort of community leaders in business, education and government, guided by the accomplished Great Southern Publishers of St. Simons Island, Georgia. Researching the community, its history and the perception of its people, Great Southern and The Chamber conceived of Coweta being a portal to a better, more prosperous community. Success and a productive future community was metaphorically like passing through a doorway and achieving a bright and prosperous future from the launching spot of Coweta County. Logos, colors and graphic depictions were produced and launched in 2012. The various
entities closely associated with Coweta agreed to adopt and use these branding components on literature and other identifying vehicles. But what is it that makes Coweta’s boast of being “Prosperity’s Front Door” meaningful and not just a slogan? We identified the basic “pillars” of Coweta’s strengths—healthcare, education, business, shopping, housing and quality of life—to support the claim of being the front door to prosperity. The “healthcare” pillar has been an early focus of the campaign, and in the future
we will be featuring the other pillars to give life and meaning to our marketing slogan. Our belief is that “Prosperity’s Front Door” will become more and more closely identified with Coweta County. Coweta’s strength is its people and leadership, its opportunities and possibilities. We have made a great start, and we know that our citizens, our businesses and our elected officials will continue to work together and be “Prosperity’s Front Door” for years to come.

2017 Prosperity Awards COWETA COUNTY is known as Prosperity’s Front Door, and our Chamber is fortunate to have so many local entities working together to make sure that our prosperity continues. This year’s four new Prosperity Award winners are pillars of prosperity who enriched the community by opening doors, creating jobs and providing greater quality of life for all. The Prosperity Award recognizes companies and organizations that have significantly impacted economic prosperity and development in our community in the past 12 months. These honorees and others are slowly but effectively putting Coweta in front of the property development curve that is beginning to reappear in areas of southwest metro Atlanta. These award winners have made key investments in Coweta County and created new jobs that send a clear message that Coweta is indeed a prosperous community and a great place to do business.
Bonnell Aluminum is our longest continuous Chamber member, and this year we honored that achievement with the Longevity Prosperity Award in honor of their many years of fostering prosperity in Coweta County.
Oldcastle Precast makes reinforced concrete pipe from 15” to 60” in diameter, and their investment in Coweta County was around $4 million and took about nine months. Reinforced concrete pipe (RCP) has a proven history with a lifespan of over 100 years. By bringing RCP manufacturing directly to Coweta County, Oldcastle is hopeful that local municipalities, including Coweta, will strengthen their specifications to make RCP the preferred storm drainage material, saving taxpayers millions of dollars in replacement costs in the future.
SENOIA ENTERPRISES, INC.
Scott Tigchelaar, co-owner of Senoia Enterprises with Brian Jagt, has served as the key visionary for the renaissance in downtown Senoia, helping develop new commercial, retail and residential space in the city. The former president of Riverwood Studios Atlanta, Scott was a driving force behind the growth of the film and video industry in Georgia. He was a key player in changes to the Georgia film tax credit program that has brought more productions to the state. Scott has helped energize Senoia’s tourism economy through his involvement with the film industry, the Southern Living Idea Houses, local retail establishments, and Nic & Norman’s restaurant. Senoia Enterprises, Inc. developed the recent addition of the Barnes Street Market to the downtown Senoia landscape.
Variety Wholesalers opened in March 2017, bringing 320 jobs and $10.5 million in new investment to the community. The company is located in the former Kmart distribution facility on Herring Road, which is the largest industrial building in Coweta County and one of the largest in the state. Variety Wholesalers is a family-owned business that began in eastern North Carolina in 1922. The company operates 360 stores in 16 states throughout the Southeast.

2017 Volunteer Awards VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR
This individual is recognized for extraordinary contributions of time and leadership that resulted in tangible benefits to the Chamber and its members.
CRISTINA BOWERMAN Cristina Bowerman is known for the excellent work she does as executive director of Newnan-Coweta Habitat for Humanity. In 2016, the organization was named the Coweta Community Foundation’s very first Nonprofit of the Year because of how well it was being operated. Cristina doesn’t just support Habitat for Humanity, however. This year, she took on the huge job of leading the Chamber’s Ambassador program, the public relations team tasked with making sure new members, returning members and guests all feel welcome at Chamber functions. Ambassadors are the faces everyone sees at ribbon cuttings, networking events and Member Connections, and the Chamber is fortunate to have Cristina heading up this program.
Our Chairman’s Award is presented to a Chamber member in recognition for their unique contributions to the organization and its members.
MARIA HALL Maria Hall of Ignite Business Coaching likes to say that she lights a fire for her clients and then helps it to burn safely with wise guidance. Maria brought some of these sparks to our Chamber last year and helped light a fire under hundreds of local entrepreneurs with the monthly Meet Ups her company offers in conjunction with our Chamber. Maria is passionate about helping others be able to do what they love and achieve their purpose in life, and the Chamber is so pleased to have her expertise available to our members.
JEFF PHILLIPS Jeff Phillips is the Managing Director of Newnan Utilities, and he’s also an integral part of this Chamber. This year, Jeff assisted in our capital improvements campaign by helping us get our new door at the headquarters for Prosperity’s Front Door, the Chamber offices on Bullsboro Drive. He also is a member of our board of directors and is serving as Vice Chair for Chamber Stewardship this year.

Connecting Members Young Professionals
Designed for those 21-45 and those “young at heart,” the YPs foster personal and professional development through social events, community service and professional opportunities for Coweta’s young professionals. In 2017, our Chamber partnered with the Coweta Community Foundation to launch the Young Professionals in Philanthropy, which is led by Matt Swope and John Herbert Cranford Jr.
Each month, Chamber members gathered at various Chamber member businesses for networking while enjoying great food and drink. In September, we gathered at Contemporary Catering to help this longtime Chamber member celebrate 25 years of business.
It was a busy year for the Leadership Coweta program as we celebrated the relaunch of the program and saw the graduation of the class of 2016-2017! For their service project, this group chose to construct and place a series of Little Free Libraries around Coweta County.
‘State of Community’ Lunch Series
In conjunction with Newnan CEO, we continued the “State of the Community” lunch series that focused on topics including economic development and commerce.

A community is only as good as its schools. And great public schools are a big reason why Coweta County is a vibrant and enriching place to live. Coweta County Schools combine a small-town, community-based feel with big-city advantages and opportunities for our students.
“A passionate and caring school system dedicated to excellence, energized by the notion of family, and committed to the success of each student.” That is how the AdvancED Accreditation Review Committee described the Coweta County School System, following their review for five-year re-accreditation of our schools in 2016. According to the independent team’s evaluation, Coweta Schools performed at much higher levels than the average AdvancEDaccredited learning institutions, in terms of teaching and learning, leadership capacity, and management of resources. During accreditation, school system stakeholders – including students and parents, teachers and community members – described Coweta Schools in several ways:
“Student-Centered” “Caring” “Amazing” “Exceptional” “Accountable” “Safe” “Nurturing” “Rigorous” “I would not want to be anywhere else.” “Committed” In the Coweta County School System, you will find schools among the top-performing in the state of Georgia and the nation: • On-time graduation rates and student performance on Georgia Milestones exams that well exceed state of Georgia averages. • Student SAT and ACT performance that exceeds state and national averages. • High rates of participation in Advanced Placement, college dual-enrollment and apprenticeships and workbased learning. • Distinctions such as a robust fine arts curriculum, outstanding athletic programs, a sophisticated technology environment including 1-to-1 pairing of students with Chromebook devices, and other advanced opportunities for students. • Honors that include AP Stem and Humanities distinctions, state Reward schools, Georgia School Boards Association Exemplary School Board, state financial awards, state and national distinctions for high return on educational investment, and Georgia’s 2018 State Superintendent of the Year.
From academics to the arts to athletics – from college prep to career readiness – Coweta County Schools are committed to ensuring the success of every student. We invite you to visit our schools, tour the Central Educational Center College and Career Academy, or attend a performance at the Donald W. Nixon Centre for Performing and Visual Arts. See for yourself why Great Schools are at the Heart of our Coweta community.
To learn more, go to cowetaschools.net, or call 770-254-2800. To enroll a new student, call our Central Registration Center at 770-254-5551.
