Everyone had a great time celebrating the return of the Greater Atlanta HBA's county chapter system at the Metro South Chapter Kick-Off Social, held on November 30 at the Crystal Lake Golf & Country Club in Hampton. Chapter President Chris Knight greeted guests at the event and spoke about the Metro South Chapter, which includes Clayton, Henry, and South Fulton Counties. The chapter's next event will be the Quarterly Lunch Meeting on February 1 with guest speaker Daunte Gibbs, Director of Planning and Economic Development for Henry County.
  

Incoming HBA President Jim Chapman addressed members at the recent New Member Orientation, which was held on November 29 at the HBA office. This was a great and informative event that allowed members to meet the HBA staff and hear about different opportunities available through the association. The staff explained to the group how to get the most out of HBA membership by getting involved with various councils, chapters, classes, social events, and community service projects. If you missed it, the next orientation is coming up on February 27!

Last week HomeAid Atlanta partnered with Bank of America to assemble 1,000 CareKits to be donated to SafeHouse Outreach, Gateway Center and Clifton Sanctuary Ministries. CareKits are hygiene kits filled with items needed by people experiencing homelessness. Thank you to the Bank of America volunteers and to Mrs. Georgia, Melanie Caceres, for assisting with the project and coordinating the donation of CareKit items from Community Associations Institute Georgia Chapter.
