After three years of serving on the Generation Green board - the past two as president, it has been a thrill for me to watch our membership grow, diversify, and get more involved in supporting the work of the Georgia Conservancy.  Now, I am thrilled to announce Generation Green's next president, Sarah Dearman.

Sarah is the Public Relations Program Manager for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and has been involved with Generation Green since she first moved to Atlanta in 2007.  She joined the Generation Green board in 2009, and quickly made her mark by organizing our communications efforts.  This very newsletter is a testimony to her leadership as its content is collaboratively produced by the communications committee she has convened on a monthly basis for the past two years.

Generation Green is fortunate to have someone as dedicated to Georgia's environment and as capable as Sarah at its helm for the next year, and Sarah is fortunate to have such a talented board to work with.  As I roll off the board, I look forward to watching Generation Green continue to grow as an incubator of Georgia's future environmental leaders under the dedication and leadership of the returning board members, the new incoming board members, and their new president.

If you are looking for more meaningful ways to get involved in the work of protecting Georgia's environment, I encourage you to consider serving in a leadership function with Generation Green either as a board member or a member of one of Generation Green's sub-committees.   If you are interested in learning more about Generation Green, please contact Leah Barnett at This email address is being protected from spambots.
