If you are a member of the Georgia Chapter, you are automatically enrolled as a member of a local Unit based on your geographic location. Several of the Units are very active with events and continuing education programs offered throughout the year. Involvement at the Unit level is an excellent way to "stay connected" and develop your professional network.
