Georgia’s burgeoning film industry and economic development will be spotlighted during this month’s Progress Through People Luncheon.
The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce will host the event at noon Thursday, Oct. 25, at the Liberty County Performing Arts Center, 2140 E. Oglethorpe Hwy in Flemington. The Liberty County Convention & Visitors Bureau (LCCVB) is sponsoring the luncheon.
Beth Nelson, the executive director of the Savannah Area Film Office, and Brynn Grant, CEO of the Savannah Economic Development Authority, are the featured speakers.
Nelson served on the Savannah Film Commission from 2012-2016, and is a founding member of Savannah Women in Film and Television. She is also a member of the Georgia Film, Music and Digital Entertainment Commission and Savannah State University’s Journalism and Mass Communications Advisory Board.
Grant also currently oversees strategy and development for the World Trade Center Savannah. She works to make the region as competitive as possible in the effort to create, grow and attract business and create jobs. Further, she dedicates her time as a board member for several college education boards.
“We are excited to have two such heavy hitters visit us in Liberty County, and it’s a special bonus that Brynn is from Liberty County as well,” said Liberty County Chamber/CVB CEO Leah Poole.
The LCCVB is the official destination marketing organization for Liberty County and also the official Camera Ready liaison for the community. The LCCVB actively markets and sells the destination brand experience to increase visitor spending and enhance community well-being and resident quality of life; maximizing economic impact through stimulation of economic development and growth.
