Chairwoman Nicole Love Hendrickson to Deliver 2024 State of Gwinnett County Address on March 7
Over 800 Expected to Join Gwinnett Annual Address at 12Stone Church

GWINNETT COUNTY, GA – The Council for Quality Growth, in partnership with the Gwinnett Chamber, will host the 2024 State of Gwinnett County Address on March 7, 2024 at 8:30 AM at 12Stone Church in Lawrenceville. The breakfast program, presented by Axis Companies and HNTB, will feature an annual address from the Chairwoman of the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners, Nicole Love Hendrickson. Over 800 Council and Chamber members, elected officials, businesses, residents, county staff, and partners of Gwinnett County and its 16 cities are expected to attend to hear the Chairwoman’s address.

The Council’s State of Gwinnett County annually convenes the county’s business community with its local government bodies and other local leaders from across the region. Chairwoman Hendrickson will address her community to present achievements and projects from the last year, as well as provide an outlook for what’s ahead in 2024.

The Council for Quality Growth works with Gwinnett County and its local municipalities year-round to advocate for our members doing business in those areas. “2024 is a key year in Gwinnett’s future as we have the opportunity to expand our transit system and enhance our regional connectivity with an anticipated TSPLOST referendum in November,” said Michael Paris, President & CEO of the Council for Quality Growth. “The Council commends the leadership of Chairwoman Hendrickson and the Gwinnett Commission for implementing innovative policy solutions that propel this county and region forward. We’re proud to see Gwinnett be a leader this year and look forward to hearing what else is in the works.”

The State of Gwinnett will also feature remarks from the Council for Quality Growth’s President & CEO, Michael Paris, and Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce President & CEO, Nick Masino. Deputy Chief Operating Officer of Atlanta Regional Commission, Katherine Zitsch, will provide an update on behalf of the Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District.
