Hello - I am a member of the Board of Directors for the Georgia Microboards Association. We have established a Facebook group that will be by invitation only to Microboards and their members. 

You, along with others that Georgia Microboards has in its records as affiliated with a Georgia Microboard, will be receiving an invitation to join the Facebook group - if you have a Facebook account you will be able to join. If you 
want to join but do not have a Facebook account and are interested in joining the group you can of course first create 
a Facebook account and then request to join the group. 

The Facebook group page can also be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/743868188980301/ 

The Facebook group is intended to give Georgia Microboards a tool for sharing of information, updates, and ideas and better enable communication and sharing between microboards.

As a reminder, this group is by invitation only. If you have additional members or people that your microboard would 
like to have added to the Facebook group, they may request membership. Please ask them to send me an email in addition that will help me to only accept memberships requests that are legitimate. 

We will monitor the group and enforce appropriate behavior and etiquette. Please help us ensure the group is a 
positive and useful tool for all microboards and their members. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate contact me.
