Lifting Up Tomorrow's Leaders 3

The young people of today will be the leaders of tomorrow. The Johns Creek Business Association believes in helping to raise up the next generation of strong men and women to make the future of our community bright. The JCBA has awarded nearly $30,000 in scholarships to area high school students since 2008, funded in part from proceeds earned at events like the Casino Night. Save the date for the third annual Casino Night on March 17 at the Atlanta Athletic Club. The St. Patrick’s Day party is open to everyone and tickets are $75.

Established in 1997, the JCBA began with a mission to serve, and today, that mission has been realized in helping thousands of area businesses connect to the local economy and providing scholarships to deserving students.

As a leading non-profit networking association in the North Fulton/South Forsyth region the group provides members a platform for business without borders through networking and referral opportunities that spans diverse business, city, chamber, and civic organizations in Johns Creek and the counties of Fulton, Forsyth, and Gwinnett. Their networking, education, and strong alliances provide membership a powerful exposure into many business opportunities and activities that are unmatched in the business community of the Johns Creek area. Currently, the membership includes new and growing businesses as well as established Fortune 500 companies in our area.

The JCBA believes in the importance of investing into the next generation by providing college scholarships to local high school seniors and to the children of members of the JCBA as well as focusing on networking and educational opportunities for small business owners and leaders in the Johns Creek community. They turn to our neighbors (and our readers!) to partner in making this possible.

There are opportunities both for event sponsorship of the Casino Night fundraiser and for sponsoring student scholarships directly. Sponsors will get their company logo at the event, PR and media recognition, promotional pieces, and social media, as well as the chance to benefit a cause that is important to the future success of our next leaders.

The JCBA welcomes 2017’s new sponsors Andersen, Tate & Carr law firm and Alcon, and is grateful to its returning sponsors SAIA Inc. trucking, Emory Johns Creek Hospital, Bank of North Georgia, and other area businesses. Join them in standing together for our community’s future.
