Keep Calm and Carry On
April 26 – April 29
Savannah International Trade & Convention Center
Savannah/Chatham County 
Originally coined in the late 1930s, 'Keep Calm and Carry On' was intended to boost morale at the onset of World War II. Although the phrase was never released until it gained popularity in the 2000's, it is often associated with British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Churchill, like many leaders, endured several obstacles but found the strength to push forward becoming a prominent figure in history.

This year at the upcoming annual conference, we invite you to join us as we embody the spirit of Churchill and focus on helping Georgia's county leaders get through difficult decisions, competing perspectives and challenging situations, and learn how you can Keep Calm and Carry On

Contact your county clerk or commission office staff to get registered today!
