Tom Mahaffey, President and CEO
The Sandy Springs Perimeter Chamber's mission is to serve as the champion for a prosperous economic environment that enriches our businesses and communities. We strive to achieve this goal in three ways; promoting, preserving and prospering.
The Sandy Springs Perimeter Chamber promotes healthy growth in our community, so that enterprises of all sizes flourish. We problem solve at the table with city leaders, so that we can preserve the hometown quality of life on which our business owners thrive.
Chair: Heather Kaufman
Recognizing the importance of an adequately trained, skilled workforce to the long-term economic vitality and growth of the community, the Sandy Springs Perimeter Chamber convened the Workforce Development Council. Based on research and roundtable discussions, the Chamber has selected several initiatives that will have a direct positive impact on the preparedness of our students.
Plan of Work
Business Bridge: In partnership with SSEF, we provide year-found opportunities for business leaders to impact student success and learning through one-on-one and small group interaction at the school, or the business’ location.
Principal for a Day: In partnership with Fulton County Schools during this annual fall event, we provide opportunities for business and community representatives shadow our public school principals.
CEO for a Day: During this one-day Chamber program, locally headquartered businesses host our public school principals and key leadership personnel. Throughout the day, at multiple locations, C-suite executives share their workforce needs, including the skills they look for when interviewing and hiring employees.
Curriculum Partnerships: Through participation in this Chamber initiative, a business or group of businesses may adopt a curriculum area at one of Sandy Springs’ public schools. Such engagement may involve support of a specialized club, afterschool program, or ongoing relationship, providing speakers, support and guidance in that area. Such engagement is at the school’s discretion.
SSPC and SSEF Partnership: SSEF manages a variety of targeted, school-based programs to bridge the gap between student needs and academic achievement. SSPC continues to provide volunteers and support for these ongoing programs.
