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
- Send everything to GEDA50@geda.org
- Any stories need to be linked from your local news source (with contact information) or in a Word document for local press releases.
- Images must be .jpg, .tiff, .ai or .eps
- Videos will be uploaded to the GEDA Youtube Channel and will be linked from there.
- Any materials submitted to GEDA are understood be used for the purposes of sharing on this timeline format.
- Please get us all materials by Friday, February 8.
- SUBMIT YOUR PROJECT HERE.
So, let’s get started!!!
