ATLANTA – United in their shared goal in helping their members thrive, MAAP (Metro Atlanta Association of Professionals) is excited to name Georgia’s Own Credit Union as its newest Diamond Sponsor – its highest level of sponsorship.
With Georgia’s Own’s commitment to the prosperity of their members, and MAAP’s mission of professional development through networking, relationship-building and education for Atlanta’s LGBT+ professionals and their allies, the new sponsorship is a natural fit for the two venerable organizations.
“This deepens our already strong relationship with Georgia’s Own and provides us opportunities to strengthen our programming and broaden our reach,” said Joshua Lorenz, MAAP President and CEO. “Georgia’s Own is heavily involved in the community today and this further strengthens their mission to support the communities they are in as well as the LGBT+ community and their allies in Atlanta.”
Adam Marlowe, Principal Experience Officer at Georgia’s Own, adds, “Georgia’s Own has been pouring into our communities and the causes that our members care about for over 80 years, so partnering with MAAP to further their important mission only makes sense. I truly believe that together, we will be able to make a significant impact not only for the members of MAAP, but for our city as well, and I couldn’t be more excited.”
Diamond is the highest form of sponsorship with MAAP, playing a key role in continuing its mission to create an inclusive environment for the Metro Atlanta LGBTA+ community that allows for professional development through networking, high-quality events, training, mentoring and education.
Founded in May 1992 by 15 people, MAAP’s mission is individual and professional development through networking, relationship-building and education for Atlanta’s LGBT+ professionals and our allies. MAAP currently has a connection network of more than 2,000 professionals.
