Allen Freeman is on the 2019 Executive Board of Directors as the Vice Chair of Regional & Government Partnerships and has served and supported the Macon community.
I am proud of the work the Chamber has accomplished over the past few years. I am also proud that my company, All Care, has allowed me the opportunity to serve. There has been a lot of transition during my time on the board. I want to thank Dan Slagle for asking me to be involved back in 2015. I had the pleasure to work closely with some great Macon business leaders like Dan, George Greer, Ron Shipman, Jim Manley and so many good fellow board members. I am confident the Chamber is in good hands for the future with Julia Magda and that our business community is strong, “Greater than Ever!” ~ Allen Freeman
