Members will be receiving Membership Seal
The Buford Business Alliance Board of Directors has approved using a membership seal and will begin distributing the badge to all current members.

The seal is intended for use by current members of the BBA on member websites and social media. The seal is a vector and can be easily placed over other images and logos.

The seal will be sent out to members via email over the coming week. If you are a member and fail to receive the seal by Friday, Nov. 10th, please reach out to Alicia at InsideBuford@gmail.com.
2023 Buford Business Alliance board member election information
In September and October, notice was given about this year's elections via the newsletter and at meetings. The BBA must elect a Vice President and a Treasurer during this year's elections. The deadline for members to announce their candidacy has passed.

Both incumbents announced their intention to seek re-election. No challengers came forward to run for either position.

Barbara Reynolds, having no challenger for the position of Vice President, will serve in the same capacity for the next two years.

Linda Gober, having no challenger for the position of Treasurer, will serve in the same capacity for the next two years.

Congratulations ladies and thank you for your service to the members of the alliance.
