If you would like to be on the agenda and give a presentation to the committee you will need to contact Cortney Gillham,, with your topic and a presentation will need to be sent to her by Thursday, August 21st  at 5:00pm. You will also be required to bring 25 copies of your presentation for the committee members prior to the start of the meeting so that they may be distributed. There will be time for public comment at the end of the meeting. You do NOT need to contact Cortney Gillham if you plan on speaking during the public comment portion of the meeting, only if you would like to be on the agenda. The Chairmen prefer that you make your presentations Georgia specific and provide specific examples if possible.
