How It Works

It Takes the Power of Three

Georgia Manufacturing Council

HOME HOW IT WORKS FAQ Join Now

There are usually three characters at the heart of every classic tale; it takes the same number of essential elements for your Georgia Manufacturing Council story to play out. Successful membership experiences work because of three vital parts: the Group, the Group Chair (also referred to as the Executive Mentor) and the Extended Community.

The Group

  • Groups are composed of 12-16 members from a variety of functional areas, non-competing businesses in the manufacturing industry.
  • Meeting agendas include member concerns, problems and opportunities, occasional speakers and the sharing of company best practices.

  • Members caringly and confidentially challenge each other, work through issues and hold each other accountable.

The Group Chair

  • Conducts confidential One-on-One mentoring/listening sessions with each member on a quarterly basis.

  • Identifies agenda items for full group input based on the One-on-One discussions.

  • Ensures the quarterly meetings are focused, safe, collaborative, challenging and deliver high value.

The Extended Community

  • Members have access to leaders in other GMC groups and the Georgia Manufacturing Alliance members.

  • Membership includes participation in the Georgia Manufacturing Council’s Executive Focus program: two relevant business leadership seminars per year delivered by world-class speakers and teachers. These member-wide events also provide great opportunities to interact with individuals from other GMC groups.
