The South Atlantic Chapter covers Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee. Historically, he majority of activiy for SAC has been centered around the Atlanta area in Georgia. The last few years of strategic planning for the chapter has indicated a desire and initial planning to launch a CMAA presence in a second metropolitan area within the region. Nashville is a hot bed of growth, development, redevelopment, innnovation and of course construction.
As the plans to launch this initiative became more concrete, a new team with “boots on the ground” in Nashville had to be established. A team with a great network to get the word out to the industry and with strong relationships to engage speakers for topics of interest.
The current team is led by Kelsey Vines of SSR with a growing committee of industry professionals, but a core team including James Hollis with Whiting-Turner, Ike Tarver with JE Dunn Construction, Andy Dulioki with Robins & Morton, Emily Fernandez with Orcutt | Winslow, and Josh Turner with Bennett & Pless..
We have multiple events in development for the coming year. We hope you will join us at one of these events and be a part of the growth and development of the Nashville Region of CMAA.
