The Carroll County Chamber of Commerce will host a Membership Breakfast with guest speaker Seth Millican, Executive Director of the Georgia Transportation Alliance. Sponsored by FLEXTC, the program, Can’t Wait for Freight raises awareness about the nearly 6 million tons of freight carried throughout Georgia each week. Millican will highlight the opportunities and challenges for Georgia’s transportation network.
The Georgia Transportation Alliance is the state’s only organization focused solely on identifying and promoting long-term transportation solutions specifically connected to economic development and job creation.
The Alliance works closely with the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, the Georgia Department of Transportation, and other key stakeholders in Georgia and Washington, DC, to ensure an efficient and safe statewide multi-modal transportation system.
FLEXTC, the event sponsor, provides and constructs temporary facilities using tension fabric buildings and structural ocean containers. FlexTC serves Industrial and Government Customers for planned events and unplanned contingencies. For 20 years, the team at FlexTC has deployed from Metro Atlanta across the country and the world, logistically supporting customers with temporary warehousing, offices, emergency operations centers, border control facilities, jails, schools, and VIP hospitality suites.
In February 2020, John Keller and the team at Keller Management & Business Operations acquired the assets and goodwill of Proteus On-Demand, marking the launch of FLEXTC. The company will soon break ground on a new facility located in the Villa Rica Industrial Park. John and the FLEXTC team are active community members participating in school and community events and Chamber initiatives.
The breakfast will be held on Thursday, September 22, at the Robert D.Tisinger Community Center / Carroll EMC, located at 155 GA 113 in Carrollton from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Tickets for the event are $25 for Members or $35 for Future Members and may be purchased online at www.carroll-ga.org.
