The Georgia Partners of the Alliance Committee,
Founded October 11, 1968

History

The original founders on both sides represented government, business, and academia. Between 1972-1983 eleven trips with plane loads of citizens each way, matched families by occupational themes, led to lasting friendships, many of which continue to this day.

Although this thread of family and vocational counterparts continues, delegations of administrators, legislators, judges, seminars by business and health professionals in rehabilitation and medicine led to more partnership activities. Most have become self-sustaining, such as physical therapy and rehabilitation (since 1978), business (since 1985), medicine (Pediatric Society exchange), teachers exchange, sports teams , violence prevention.

Over the years, many objectives and accomplishments have been achieved which contribute to the strong long-term partnership between the two states. Many members have served on the local boards as well as the international board of directors in Washington, DC. The Georgia Pernambuco Partnership is proud to have had 8 members of the Partners of the Americas - Kellogg Fellows Program for International Development. Strategic committees have been created to address the needs and concerns of each partnership. A list of committees appear on the website launch page under: People & Culture, Information & Education, and Organization & Business. Please refer to the link below detailing the history of the first 25 years of the Georgia-Pernambuco Partnership.
