Annual Dinner: For the past 110+ years, GMA has been kicking off the New Year with the Annual Dinner. The evening begins with the cocktail reception where attendees mix and mingle with fellow GMA members & civic leaders. Attendees then enjoy a delicious sit down dinner, followed by the passing of the gavel to our incoming Chairman of the Board. The evening concludes with entertainment from a special guest speaker. Past speakers have included Boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard, NFL Hall-of-Famers Terry Bradshaw & Herschel Walker, and “Baseball’s Greatest Catcher” Johnny Bench. This is THE event of the year! You won’t want to miss it!
Member Outing: GMA organizes occasional social events for our membership. Events include attending a Greensboro Grasshoppers baseball game complete with a pregame cookout and a Race and Seek scavenger hunt.
Orientation: GMA’s New Member Orientation is a fast-paced interactive program that introduces new members, new employees of GMA member companies, and anyone looking to get more from their GMA membership. Discover all the programs and benefits that GMA offers.
Risers Meet Ups: Risers Meet Ups are opportunities for young professionals with GMA member companies to network with each other over lunch. While these events are intended for young professionals, all GMA members are welcome to participate.
Risers Socials: Risers Socials are casual networking events held after hours at local venues. Past socials have included Trivia Night, Arcade Games, Brewery Tours and a Swarm game. While these events are intended for young professionals, all GMA members are welcome to participate.
