Economic Development Update & Golden Isles Development Authority FY 2020-2021 Annual Report

Taking the time to acknowledge achievements, review goals, and identify new opportunities is critical for any organization. For the past two years, staff at The Golden Isles Development Authority (GIDA) has completed an Annual Report to review our goals, accomplishments, challenges, and the economic health of the Golden Isles (Glynn County, Georgia).

Promoting the Annual Report to the community, stakeholders, and external audiences demonstrates a core value of our team- accountability. GIDA uses the Objective and Key Results (OKR) system for goal setting and tracks its progress in its focus areas: Attraction, Retention/Expansion, Marketing, Product Development, and Workforce Development. The annual report includes the progress of GIDA’s staff in reaching OKR goals that align with promoting economic prosperity for the Golden Isles (page six).

While this report shares how GIDA has spent the past year working towards our goals, it is also a story of the extraordinary work created in the Golden Isles. The highlights include accounts of innovation from local entrepreneurs, solution-focused processes from County staff, and examples of the community coming together to attract and develop talent.

We invite you to download the report and learn more about the work of GIDA staff and the many professionals invested in creating economic prosperity for the Golden Isles.
