The CCA Atlanta Chapter partnered with Sweetwater Brewing to hold our annual banquet fund raiser. To build on a platform from previous success our goal is provide a fun and relaxed atmosphere for our members to enjoy a night for conservation. It is our goal as a chapter to provide an experience that can be enjoyed by conservation enthusiasts at a venue whose principals align with our common goal. Building from the momentum of the national campaign with Sweetwater and Building Conservation Trust (CCA Habitat) we continue to host our annual banquet at Sweetwater’s “Reel Room”. The success of our banquet is a three-part formula. Our local chapter is comprised of people who dedicate time away from their busy schedule to ensure we put on a quality event for people from all walks of life. The second piece to the puzzle is our enthusiastic participants. Year after year I am overwhelmed by the generosity of our members who attend the event. As a chapter it is the energy and generosity of our members that drives us to continue to innovate and deliver a better banquet experience. Lastly, without the support of our sponsors, donations, and individuals it would not be possible. Each year we solicit the help of national and local organizations to provide items for our raffle, silent auction, and live auction. As our banquet continues to grow, we provide feedback to our members each year of the success that the event and their donations have allowed in the previous year. Success for our chapter is defined by the experience we provide as a platform for improvement of local fisheries.
