Central Atlanta Progress Membership Councils are a signature benefit of being a member of our organization, and all members are encouraged to roll up their sleeves and take a seat at the table. Councils are designed to support CAP's growth and development and to advise staff and other members on complex or specialized matters, as well as general programmatic goals and direction. Council meetings take deep dives into content relevant to the group's area of focus, often featuring thought leaders from across the community. Members can join councils at any time during the year.
If you or members of your team are interested in one of the councils listed below as an opportunity for engagement, please contact Jessica Keys at (404) 658-5908.
