Local leaders among top in Georgia

Last year, Georgia Trend magazine introduced the inaugural GEORGIA 500, a comprehensive publication of leaders around the state driving our successful economy to new heights year after year, and once again, Chamber President, Sue Parr has been named to this list.

The Augusta Metro Chamber serves as the voice of the business community and represents over 1,200 members. Under Parr’s leadership, the Chamber’s policy work has included advocating for local excise tax-free industrial energy costs and abundant transportation infrastructure, supporting the state’s second back-to-back 10-year, 13-county Transportation Investment Act (TIA) program.
