GMA - Committee for Good Government
What is GMACGG?
The Georgia Mining Association Committee For Good Government is a nonprofit
bipartisan, voluntary committee of corporate and individual representatives
interested in supporting state legislative programs of the mining and business
community. Formed in 1984, both mining and associate members are encouraged
to participate in GMACGG. GMACGG’s primary objectives are to foster, encourage,
and promote good government and to enhance the economic well being of the mining
industry in Georgia.
How will you benefit?
GMACGG is your voice in the State Capitol on legislation of interest to the
business community and the mining industry. Candidates for state-wide and legislative
office who have demonstrated a commitment to sound government and economic
well being of the State of Georgia need our financial support. GMACGG contributions
are made to candidates who have shown a willingness to consider the industry’s
position on legislative matters.
GMACGG gives mining companies, supplier firms and individuals an effective,
affordable vehicle for participating as part of a larger effort. Individuals

is an important means of increasing your involvement in the political process.
