50th Anniversary Timeline
Share |

We are very excited to announce yet another exciting project in conjunction with celebrating 50 years of serving our members.  GEDA has recently completed work on the 50th Anniversary Publication that you have seen online and with the January issue of Georgia Trend Magazine.  The center of that publication is a 4-page foldout timeline of SOME of the milestone People, Projects and Programs over the past half century.  But we know that there is SO.  MUCH.  MORE.

At our super-huge Celebration Luncheon on March 18th, we will unveil a new online interactive timeline.  Here is a screenshot with a VERY SIMPLE mockup of what it could look like.  The company that is doing this for us, AIS Media, provided these few slides as a way to show what will be available.  You will be able to create your own experience as you walk through our 50 years.  You can “zoom in” to a very specific date range, or see the entire 50 years on one page.  As you zoom closer and closer in, more and more events will appear on the screen.  And we can continue to add more events as they occur.  This will not be merely historical.  We will add projects continually so that this can continue to grow!   SUBMIT YOUR PROJECT HERE.

And that is where YOU come in.  We need content!  This is a very easy, FREE and unique way to market your community and some of your success stories.  We are depending on you to deliver the content to us!  Send us everything you have on any project announcements over the last FIFTY YEARS, including:

  • Newspaper clippings
  • Links to stories online
  • Photographs
  • Images
  • Stories
  • Video
Send us TOO much information – I dare you!  And don’t stop at just one or two projects – send us twenty projects.  Think of the exposure you could receive if your success stories were promoted all over the GEDA website.  All you have to do is get us the information, and we’ll take care of the rest.  SUBMIT YOUR PROJECT HERE.
Once your posts are uploaded to the timeline, we can add all of the social media sharing icons so that your successes can go viral online.  We’ll link your posts back to your website, driving more content to your site.  What a great benefit and a cool new way to market your community as a great home for business.  And it works both ways – you can direct people to the timeline to see all of your great news, too!
Now – for the details …
  • Send everything to
  • Any stories need to be linked from your local news source (with contact information) or in a Word document for local press releases.
