This past week GCA celebrated the holidays by recounting the successes of 2019 and having a feast with GCA members and friends. It was great to see our friends from the Atlanta Black Chamber, Women in Defense and the Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Food was in abundance and it seemed like Thanksgiving dinner all over again. There was turkey, ham, greens and lots of desserts (not the place to be if you were trying to cut back). As for me, I would love another helping of that dressing.
The best part was getting to socialize and deepen relationships with our members. There were some talented members thrilling the party as they sung karaoke, and I think we discovered something new about our membership. GCA members- are cutthroat when it comes to playing spades.
Many people who signed up talked the talk, but there were two members who walked the walk! We want to congratulate Michelle & Reginald for winning the Spades tournament at our 2019 GCA Holiday Mixer! Enjoy that success while it lasts because we're all coming after you!
There were prizes for the survivors… uh.. winners. We may even have to schedule another spades tournament soon. Let us know if you are interested!

A little time was given to recognize new members as well as members who won contracts (5 winners this past month). A solid end of the year finish. GCA also announced some key scheduling and organizational changes. As always, you can monitor the GCA calendar at www.govevent.com but all should note that in 2020, GCA will begin conducting its Capture Management Training on Tuesday evenings at 6:00pm. This training will be delivered in conjunction with the Capture Management Institute and will replace GCA’s Wednesday Workshops.
Lastly, GCA’s Georgia Chapter President, Myra Cisse, is stepping down as she explains in the following video: (Click the image to be directed to the video link)
