GEC Annual Meeting
New By-Laws, Officers, Board, and a Vision for the Future

There was no lack of food, fellowship and conversation at the GEC Annual Membership Meeting.   It was a time to celebrate a year of success and refine our vision for the future.

The GEC Annual meeting was held on June 10th nestled under the great oaks at the Highland Park Community Center.  Over food and with fellowship from GEC members, President Bill Owens presented the new GEC by-laws, which were approved.   The election of 2008-9 officers and Board followed.  With the change in By-Laws, the GEC will have an elected Board and an Advisory Council made up of partner organizations and leaders from the community.   Also, the term of Board members was increased for better continuity from year-to-year as the GEC continues to work on several long-term projects.


A brief update was given on current GEC projects by Bill Owens.  The Congressional investigation of the journal Regulatory Toxicology and Pharmacology, the Weinberg Group, and the implications for Glynn County, were of interest to the GEC members present.  Members wanted to know if the documents requested under a Freedom of Information Act request would be available for their review.  Bill reiterated that the resources of the GEC are there for our members and our community. 


A vision for what the GEC can accomplish and how it would bring a brighter future for Glynn County closed out the evening.  Even though the progress that has been made is impressive, there is more to do.  Knowing that we have clean and safe schools remains a priority for members and a renewed call to resolve the situation at Altama Elementary was made, even if the GEC must do the testing ourselves.   The next few years will be important as the GEC works to clean up the last remaining bits of our industrial legacy.  When the task is done, the growth in the economic vitality of Glynn County could be explosive, which will bring new challenges for which the GEC is currently preparing.
