GAA staff and volunteer leaders are continually monitoring the Covid-19 pandemic and most recent trends across the state, region, and nation. We are currently planning to host the 30th anniversary GAA Annual Meeting as scheduled, September 9-11 at the Ritz Carlton Amelia Island. The states of Georgia and Florida have both been slowly easing restrictions over the past several weeks, re-opening the economy and paving the road for our next normal. We will continue to monitor the situation as it develops and will ensure that we have proper precautions available as dictated at that time. Please remember that this situation is very fluid and can change very quickly, as we have certainly seen over the past three months.


The health and safety of our members and guests is extremely important to us. Again, our current plan is to host a phenomenal conference in Florida the second week of September, and we hope to see you there!
