Change Makers

This coordinated group of volunteers oversees the long-term initiatives, defined by the citizens. Acting as change agents, the group leads volunteer committees to propel the work of the Big Ideas.  

Change Makers

These volunteers lead the working committees of Vision 2030 and make up the Vision 2030 Board.  The Board meets monthly to exchange updates and collaborate further. Each leader serves a minimum three year term.  

Committee chairs meet regularly with their committee to further the work of their Big Idea goals. Committee membership is open to anyone with interest! We invite you to learn more about the Big Ideas championed by each committee, and join us to shape the future vision of Gainesville-Hall County.
