Georgia On My Mind Days at Georgia Visitor Centers

The Visitor Information Center Program of the Georgia Department of Economic Development’s Tourism Division is once again sponsoring Georgia On My Mind Days at Georgia’s Visitor Centers. These events are free, and SGA can set up a table/display (we must provide the table) to distribute our brochures and informational fliers; offer fun, educational games and activities for kids; and generally educate the public about archaeology in Georgia and perhaps drum up new members. Visitors to these events come from everywhere (locals and people from across the state of Georgia and beyond), and the events get newspaper/media coverage that could help raise the profile of SGA and our mission. Many people attend and enjoy the festival-like atmosphere. This is a fun activity and a great project for SGA’s chapters.

See the website here for more information on the dates and locations of the events, presented at right. If you would like to participate or coordinate an SGA presence at one of the events, please contact Pamela Johnson at pamjohnson@dot.ga.gov or (404) 699-4424.
