The Georgia Municipal Association and city officials across the state understand the foundational role literacy plays in the creation of vibrant, economically successful cities; the places where we live, work, and play. The Get Georgia Reading Campaign and the four-pillar agenda is a key component to ensuring that Georgia’s children have an opportunity to succeed and to become knowledgeable participants in their city’s civic life.”

Brian Wallace, Director of Strategic Initiatives

The mission of the Georgia Municipal Association (GMA) is to anticipate and influence the forces shaping Georgia’s cities and to provide leadership, tools, and services that assist municipal governments in becoming more innovative, effective, and responsive. GMA and Georgia City Solutions, the association’s 501(c)(3), support new and innovative programs, solutions, and research aimed at building vibrant, economically prosperous, and well-managed cities and improving the quality of life of municipal residents in Georgia.

Created in 1933, GMA is the only state organization that represents municipal governments in Georgia. Based in Atlanta, GMA is a voluntary, nonprofit organization that provides legislative advocacy, educational, employee benefit and technical consulting services to its members.

ENGAGE: Connecting With Georgia’s Children and Youth is a GMA and Georgia City Solutions initiative that highlights and supports cities and city officials as they engage and connect with children and youth in their communities and address the issues they face.
