Hall County releases promotional video

By Staff
GAINESVILLE - Hall County Government is releasing a new promotional video, highlighting the county's natural landscape, rich agricultural and business community, educational opportunities, healthcare system and much, much more.<br /> <br /> The video was created after Hall County officials were notified last year by ICMA, the International City/County Management Association, that they were one of a few select cities and counties chosen to be highlighted via video during the organization's 2013 annual conference in Boston, Mass. <br /> <br /> "It is a tremendous honor to be selected by ICMA for this opportunity," Hall County Administrator Randy Knighton said. "Airing the video at the annual conference gave Hall County international exposure, and I think that will have an impact on the County's opportunity for growth and economic development in the future."<br /> <br /> ICMA production crews arrived in the area last August to film interviews with various representatives from Hall County's business, agricultural and political communities. Featured in the video are Georgia Poultry Federation President Emeritus Abit Massey, Northeast Georgia Medical Center CEO Carol Burrell, Lake Lanier Islands Chief Operating Officer Grier Todd, Hall County Administrator Randy Knighton, members of the Hall County Board of Commissioners and Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal.<br /> <br /> The video will be used by Hall County officials as a promotional and marketing tool at various events throughout the state and region. It will also be prominently featured on TV-18, The Government Channel, and on Hall County's new website, which is set to debut later this year. <br /> <br /> The video release follows the unveiling of a new Hall County logo and slogan earlier this year and is a part of a larger rebranding effort announced by Hall County officials in 2013.
