“The GNFCC supports the enhanced mobility of the local workforce with the passage of the Fulton County  (.75) cent Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax, or TSPLOST,  in the November 8, 2016 election, in order to ensure that local North Fulton businesses have access to a broader base of prospective employees, the opportunity for continued economic growth and sustainability, and enhanced quality of life for its residents.”

Make Your Opinion Count

Occasionally the Chamber will broadcast a "Call to Action" to members. If you receive a call to action, this is your opportunity to voice your opinion on a critical issue facing our community. These are time- sensitive issues, so be sure to take part promptly by drafting a letter, calling an elected official or attending a meeting. Another important way you can participate in the Chamber is to answer policy and business surveys and questionnaires that the GNFCC provides to its members. Results are tabulated and reported to the appropriate level of government.
