CLARKESVILLE— House Speaker David Ralston (R-Blue Ridge) Wednesday announced the appointment of Rep. Terry Rogers (R-Clarkesville) to the Georgia World Congress Center Authority (GWCCA) Overview Committee.
That's according to a press release from the House of Representatives Communications Office.
“I am appreciative to Speaker Ralston for appointing me to the GWCCA Overview Committee,” said Rep. Rogers. “As construction and new developments are underway for GWCC’s newest facility, the new Atlanta stadium, I look forward to working with the GWCC Authority, and my fellow committee members, as we ensure that we protect the assets and interests of all Georgians.”
The GWCCA Overview Committee is responsible for monitoring and reviewing the operations of the GWCCA. Members will serve for a term concurrent with their 2015-2016 legislative terms of office as members of the General Assembly.
Other House members appointed to the GWCCA Overview Committee include:
State Representative Butch Parrish (R-Swainsboro), Vice Chair
Representative Mike Cheokas (R-Americus)
House Speaker Pro Tem Jan Jones (R-Milton)
State Representative Rahn Mayo (D-Decatur)
“The GWCC is one of the top convention centers in the country, thus making its facilities appealing to metro and rural Georgians, alike. In fact, the GWCC plays host to the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), the world’s largest annual poultry exhibition, which is the number one industry in my district. Residents of northeast Georgia, as well as many others from across the state, visit the GWCC facilities for this annual event, among many others, which stimulate our state and local economies," said Rogers.
