Update on Management Services Proposal for SITCC

As a follow up to Town Hall this past Wednesday, Mr. Poe mentioned that the Authority is a finalist for consideration of a management contract with the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center (SITCC). While there has been no decision by the SITCC Board,  our senior leadership felt it was prudent to form a strike team to coordinate all the necessary information associated with a potential management services program. The strike team includes Sherrie Spinks, Derrick Marcus, and Chris Chadwick. Should we receive a favorable vote by the SITCC Board, the  team members will be dedicated to this project exclusively and all other job duties suspended or reassigned until the transition is complete. Again, this adjustment in responsibilities will be contingent upon the GWCCA being selected as the management company for SITCC.

Please find attached an article from today’s Atlanta Business Chronicle which provides a general update on the process. We will certainly keep you updated as information is available. As always, if you have any questions please let us know.

Thank you,

Jennifer LeMaster| Director of Communications
