The Greater North Fulton Chamber (GNFCC) announced a move to the 10,000 Building in Avalon at their Tuesday, October 19 Board of Directors Meeting. The Chamber, along with the North Fulton CID (NFCID), have officed in NorthWinds Summit on Haynes Bridge Road for 15 years.
The new office location on the lobby level of the 10,000 Building will increase our current footprint by 35%. GNFCC CEO Kali Boatright explains, “The GNFCC Strategic Plan identified the need for our 1,200 members to have more places to meet and collaborate with one another. With the design of our new office, we have focused the majority of our space on our members and their success.” The new office design uses natural light and collaborative staff office space to its advantage, dedicating the majority of the area to convening.
The two organizations have worked together collaboratively and shared space since the creation of the NFCID, so it was important the new location remained in the CID District. “The Chamber and CID were both instrumental in the development of Avalon and Gwinnett Technical College,” said Brandon Beach, Executive Director of the NFCID. “Our new location includes a visual reminder daily of the regional impact of both organizations.”
Kerry Armstrong, Chair of the North Fulton CID added, “The CID Board has recently approved a BluePrint for continued community enhancement, so it was important to have an office that supports that vision while also maintaining a successful partnership with the Chamber, allowing both organizations to do more together.”
“As the Regional Chamber in North Fulton, this location clearly reflects the organization’s focus on economic and community development,” said GNFCC Chair Lindsey Petrini. “The Chamber is seeing tremendous growth as an organization, reflecting the growth of the six cities we serve, and we believe our new home will elevate the GNFCC experience for our members and prospects.”
