Event Details

Program: 2020 Annual Awards

Lieutenant Governor Geoff Duncan will join us for remarks and awarding of some of our awards.

Successful entrepreneur, Geoff Duncan was elected Georgia’s Lieutenant Governor in November of 2018.

After retiring from baseball, Geoff and his wife Brooke started a small marketing firm in their living room. The company experienced tremendous success which allowed Geoff and Brooke to sell the business and move on to multiple other entrepreneurial ventures. Geoff most recently served as the CEO of a health technology startup.

Annually, GEDA provides awards in a number of categories to recognize excellence in our association and of our members. 

This year we will recognize three Deal of the Year companies and communities in the Small, Mid-Size and Large categories.  Also, our Volunteer of the Year will be announced as well as the Rip Wiley Award for Professional Excellence, Honorary Life Members and our Committee Chair of the Year.  Lastly, but certainly not least, we will witness the passing of the gavel from Chris Pumphrey, GEDA’s 2020 Chair to Andrea Schruijer, GEDA Chair for 2021.  Come and join us in-person, if you can/want and virtually, if not.

GEDA will be presenting the Awards and Recognitions detailed on this page,
