Management Workshop


In February, the membership of the GCAA convened for its annual Management Workshop at the Cobb Galleria in Atlanta, Georgia.  This workshop is one the most well attended and successful trade shows in the country for our industry. The Management Workshop Committee works to provide attendees with a program built around themes such as safety, education, community relations or sustainability.

Plant management and industry executives alike turned out en masse and provided vendors the opportunity to discuss new products and services. Year in and year out, the Management Workshop is given rave reviews by attendees and has even been dubbed a “mini ConAgg.”
